    "SO much faster than Adobe! Edit AND save pdf files!"

    March 7, 2010  |   By flanjerka


    This is a GREAT alternative to anyone who feels Adobe Reader is slow. IT IS. Foxit reader loads pdf files a thousand times faster.


    Not many - sometimes annoying messages to purchase the "pro" version...


    This is a FAST pdf file reader and editor. You can read all forms of pdf, enter info into pdf "fields" and even SAVE your changes. You can't do that with Adobe Acrobat! Foxit Reader even displays pdf files in your favorite browser such as IE and Firefox (though Firefox 3.6 sucks) super fast (much faster than in-browser files with Acrobat). Uses tabbed viewing, which is helpful. Just a great program and much faster than Adobe Acrobat.
