Pros

Portable and does exactly what it says it does.

I like Sumatra and carry it everyware , but for a desktop application I find Nitro Pdf reader more usefull as I can edit at the same time.

"Good pdf player"

October 19, 2010  |  By ExtremelyDistressed

 |  Version: Sumatra PDF Viewer 1.1

Pros

It's very light unlike adobe reader that takes time to open large files

Cons

I hope they add extract, split or merge pdf files and have tabbed bar so i can open 2 or more pdf in one window.

I like this program and its simplicity. Hope you improve this by adding some features just like what i wrote in cons.

"Like a Virus!! Can't uninstall/get rid of this junk!!"

August 15, 2010  |  By Jeramee

 |  Version: Sumatra PDF Viewer 1.1

Pros

It wasn't what I was looking for, and now I can't get rid of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons

Can't get rid of it.

Summary

It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, which is fine. But, when I can't get rid of a program, that's unacceptable. There is no uninstall option, and there is even a forum discussion on this at Sumatra's site from 4 months ago, so this is a known issue. Completely unacceptable.

"Less bloat equals more usability"

June 30, 2010  |  By denigma78

 |  Version: Sumatra PDF Viewer 1.1

Pros

no trick questions when installing like foxit asks you about the ask.com toolbar

Cons

user interface a little medieval

Summary

this is for people who only need to view pdf's like bank statements, for activities that don't require viewing large pdf documents

"Excellent alternative pdf reader"

June 18, 2010  |  By student26

 |  Version: Sumatra PDF Viewer 1.1

Pros

Lightweight pdf reader
- a functional, minimalistic gui (lacks the toolbar seen in foxit - on that note the are no additional addons, errm . . . ask toolbar )
- command line capablilty :)
- organized manual for keyboard shortcuts

Cons

- printing is slow
- rendering (opening) a portable document format can be slower than other mainstream readers (negligible).
- pdf reader only; lacks options to convert files, create pdfs and insert comments.

Summary

Recommended to those who are looking for quality pdf reader to replace insecurities with Adobe reader and foxit reader (and the annoying ask toolbar - understand what you are gonna put on your hard drive and don't install it; its is painless to remove however).
Installation smooth without any glitches or addons
SumatraPDF is an open source application !!
Further, Sumatra can be used to replace the acrobat plugin on IE and Firefox without uninstalling acrobat - just look in the provided "manual"
Performs its function to the t !
