    Default Which is your preferred pdf reader - Adobe, Foxit or Sumatra?

    I used to use Foxit, but I had uninstalled it... it now also includes foistware.

    So I currently use Adobe Reader which takes all of takes 203 MB of disk space!

    Sumatra pdf which apparently comes recommended by Eset occupies 1.2 MB.



    Here is an interesting post on Faceboook which made me check it out! I will try it as my default pdf reader. Lets see how it holds up. Its yellow color is the only turnoff ....

    Which is your preferred pdf reader?

    If you don't use the Foxit installer and instead use the zip (available on the Foxit site), you wont have to mess with the toolbar/addons for a clean install.

    hi !

    i have used Foxit for almost 2 years now, but since the latest upgrade includes the ASK-toolbar for local "document-search", even if you donīt install it (!?), i have now switched to Sumatra.

    iīm also planning to try some other free readers.

    "Other" in the polll and PDFXchange Viewer, switched to it from Foxit about two years ago.

    The Ask logo is not a toolbar. Foxit promises the Ask "logo" will be removed in the next version in a couple of days. I'm sticking with Foxit... Better than the rest...IMHO. (Yes, I've tried them)

    Been using Foxit with no issues - hmm maybe I'm using an old version!

    I use Adobe Reader for Windows Vista and Foxit for Widows 7 with no problems.

    None other than Adobe Reader. Why go for other when it's free ?
