Installed MyPCBackup on my computer without asking me anything, days after I installed PdfLite. Will install all other types of crapware too. These people are fortunate I can't get my hands on them.

"This Is Not a Ripoff"

October 01, 2013  |  By Taras_Bulba

 |  Version: PDFlite 0.9

Pros

Lightweight. Opens rapidly in a browser Window. Uncomplicated GUI with all the basic viewing functions - zoom, rotate, full screen, find, etc. The nasty chrome yellow background of Sumatra is absent, otherwise the GUI is almost exactly the same as that of Sumatra.

Cons

The same as those of Sumatra. No bookmarks. No highlighting. No annotations. No text copy. No text mode. No tabs. When I attempted to download version 0.92 NOD32 flagged the download as Win32/InstallCore.CH application. According to FSecure "InstallCore is an advertising module that displays targeted advertising material. User information may be collected from the system in order to select the appropriate advertisements for display." and "Users may or may not elect to install the component, at their own discretion".

Summary

The Wikipedia article for Sumatra states that Sumatra is an open source program which means that Amnis Technology do have a right to distribute a derivative of Sumatra and they do acknowledge their use of Sumatra code. However, I am not sure that the GNU General Public License permits them to distribute their Sumatra derivative using their own installer with bundled software. The only bundled software that came with version 0.9 was a Word to PDF converter.

Sumatra/PDFLite are ideal for intergration with a browser so that pdfs can open rapidly in a browser window, but I recommend that you also have a another pdf viewer with more comprehensive features on your system

"It's a SumatraPDF ripoff"

August 07, 2013  |  By kkowalczyk

 |  Version: PDFlite 0.9

Pros

It's as good as SumatraPDF, but only because it's SumatraPDF ripoff with a different name.

Cons

I'm the author of SumatraPDF. PDFLite simply took SumatraPDF code, renamed it and bundled additional crappy software with it.
