    "Fast and simple PDF viewer"

    September 26, 2014   |   By ErnieCable

    Version: Sumatra PDF 2.5.2

    Pros

    Loads very fast
    small file size
    simple

    Cons

    can't think of anything

    Summary

    If you want to read/view PDF files this is a great choice. It's fast, easy to use, does exactly what you want a PDF viewer to do. If you want to edit PDFs, make highlights and so on then you should look for another program (maybe FoxIt PDF).
    I set up sumatra as my default PDF viewer - it's so much faster!

    "This is a good choice"

    September 18, 2014   |   By weronorew

    Version: Sumatra PDF 2.5.2

    Pros

    Before writing this review I tried to download and use different kinds of pdf viewer, but so far this is what I experience with this software:
    ? ultra-lightweight and extremely fast
    ? quite convenient for quick pdf viewing
    ? easy navigation like n/p for next/previous page
    ? has the basic tools such as zoom, book mode, presentation mode, and fullscreen

    Cons

    ? I really don't see any. Well it doesn't have unnecessary graphics to make it look good.

    Summary

    I really like this software because it doesn't use so much memory and cpu process. If you're the kind of person who just needs to view pdf files quickly, fast, and without any fancy graphics then this is the ultra-lightweight pdf viewer for you.

    "Not malware - a standard, lightweight PDF reader"

    September 17, 2014   |   By emptyhead411

    Version: Sumatra PDF 2.5.2

    Pros

    Went through the pain of registering here just to counter the ill-formed other review. Not sure what this person was talking about.
    Perhaps they downloaded the non-installer version, which doesn't install and therefore doesn't need an uninstaller as you simply delete the folder.
    I've downloaded the installer version and it has an uninstall right there in control panel.
    The program itself is nice and lightweight with all the options I need (zooming, toggle-able contents tree, rotation, full-screen mode) plus a few others I haven't needed yet, but no extra fluff. Fast and even installer has an option to add pdf reader to some browsers which i found very useful.

    Brilliant little reader. My new favourite. Used STDU viewer before this.

    Cons

    Can't think of any. Perhaps looks a little dull because there's no extra fluff. Oh the opening screen has an awful colour choice.

    Summary

    Excellent app that does what it's supposed to very well. Disregard other review calling it malware as I would hazard the person was not very au fait with using computers.
    I haven't used it enough i suppose to see if it corrupted PDFs, but as it has no save option and only a save as... and seems to perform no writing operations to the original, I would guess this to be nonsense too and would venture a guess that the 'Malware' review author maybe didn't know what they were doing.

    Meant to give 5 stars but can't seem able to change that

    "MALWARE ALERT"

    June 03, 2014   |   By rigst4

    Version: Sumatra PDF 2.5.2

    Pros

    Can read pdf files

    Cons

    Can't uninstall, damages some pdfs, creator website does not offer any assistance on uninstalling this virus/malware-like app. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this one.

    Summary

    Do yourself a favor and stay away from this one.
