    "avoid-use regular Foxit-installs trash on your computer"

    June 5, 2013  |   By dripacc

    Version: Foxit Reader Portable 5.4.5.0124

    Pros

    nothing at all

    Cons

    installed bunch of garbage on my computer, some of it did not let itself be uninstalled; had to resort to Restore

    Summary

    I liked Foxit before, and after this cnet sponsored (or created) disaster I went to Foxit site and installed regular version from there. It works fine. I used to love download.cnet, but will look elsewhere now- unfortunately, this is not isolated example.

    "Great PDF Reader - And a Great alternative!"

    March 6, 2013  |   By Imogen7Ryan

    Version: Foxit Reader Portable 5.4.5.0124

    Pros

    Windows 8 compatible. Has all the features of its competitor and looks nicer and easier to use. It has a contents, chapters pane with the ability to bookmark places - which you can hide. It effortlessly allows for page scrolling and does what CNet's review said it does. It is much more lightweight than the other one.

    Cons

    For me there isn't any with the Reader itself. But I didn't like the 'Registration' option which required way too many details.

    Summary

    Foxit Reader is a good and just as worthy alternative. After trying a few I knew I'd end up with this one as the others simply lacked too many features. The Registration is geared much more towards Business users I believe. Foxit Reader Portable is compatible with Windows 8, works well and is much better than Win8's own Reader so Foxit has been set to Default. Try it.
