Editors' Review

+

Foxit Reader creates, converts, and edits PDFs (including secure documents), accepts plug-ins, and makes it easy to collaborate and share documents by email and social media.

Pros

Layout: Foxit Reader's layout takes design cues from Office, like the ribbon-style main toolbar, though the software has its own touches, like the Quick Access Toolbar. Nearly everything can be customized.

Protect: Foxit Reader's security features include DocuSign options on the Protect tab.

Read out loud: The View tab's Read feature can read documents out loud through headphones or your PC's loudspeakers. Sliders adjust speech rate and volume.

Support: Hundreds of millions of users have helped Foxit's developers work the bugs out of Reader and add the features and extras that work best. Help is available in abundance, including manuals, error reports, and Command Line Help.

Cons

Complicated: Despite a well-designed interface, Foxit Reader can seem busy and complicated. You can customize things to suit your needs, but that's another complication. Since cost isn't an issue, more basic one-function PDF utilities sometimes offer faster solutions.

Bottom Line

Foxit Reader isn't the only excellent freeware PDF solution out there, but it's certainly one of the top few. Business-oriented upgrades are available for a price, but the freeware has more than enough for most users.

"Version 7.3 Classic toolbar no longer an option"

March 21, 2016  |  By BOBRGR

2016-03-21 08:48:39  |  By BOBRGR

 |  Version: Foxit Reader 7.3.4.311

Pros

Up through Version 7.28, the classic toolbar option made this the best pdf reader
Quick, Versatile, Customizable

Cons

7.3 version's "ribbon" interface may appeal to some...but many users like me, uninstalled and reverted to 7.28 because the classic toolbar option was no longer available on 7.3 and above

Summary

Unless Foxit changes it's "no classic toolbar' policy, many users will shift to other readers when security becomes an issue.

Previous versions of the software worked fine. I hope the company wakes up and fixes this mess, the market still needs alternatives to Adobe Reader.

Foxit hangs every time I open a document on my Windows 7 machine. I cannot scroll past the first page or print anything.

Pros

Used to be lightweight and reliable.

Cons

I can't use it without it crashing anymore. It's failed me at a critical time while studying for finals and doing homework. Will not be using Foxit anymore. PDF-Xchange viewer is better.
