New version of Foxit PDF Reader available

leave a comment »

Free, and much better and faster than Adobe Reader. And now a new version:

Adobe may have innovated the PDF file format, but Foxit Reader is our favorite application for reading PDFs. That’s because it’s light-weight and blazing fast. You can open and close Foxit 2 or 3 times in the amount of time it takes Adobe Reader to load.

But while Foxit is light in terms of resources, it’s also been a bit feature-light when it comes to things like copying text. Foxit 2.2 has an improved text copy feature, and a few other updates that make the program a full-fledged rival to Adobe Reader.

  • Search for text either in a single PDF file or in multiple PDF files.
  • Minimize to system tray
  • View the actual size of PDF pages
  • Better command line support
  • Bug fixes

The basic version of Foxit Reader is free. If you want to edit or annotate documents, you’ll have to update to the Foxit Reader Pro pack.
