Pros: There are some nice features and it can be used across multiple platforms, like PC, Ebook readers ,etc...

Cons: Very flaky and unstable... Had multiple occasions where it stopped recognizing new PDF's (usually after an upgrade). other times it simply wouldn't associate with PDFS. Way too many other products that do a much better job.

Overall: It does read PDF's (most of the time) and has some good features, but to unstable to count on for everyday use.

Pros: I found this as a replacement for that other big name in PDF readers. For the value, this is where its at and you're not force to have a monthly subscription like others if you decide to go with the editing software. It has a simple interface that is similar to office. No experience needed to navigate your way around.

Cons: Nothing so far. It is pretty straight forward. I will say it is a bit pricey if you get the editing edition, but with that beings said, it does have the option to pay a one time license fee vs the monthly subscription if you want to go that route. Its free to try and I prefer this over Adobe.

Pros: I really enjoy using Foxit, I used it for editing or commenting on the products labels to send it to printing house. I am using it since 2008 and it never let me down.
Foxit is one of the quickest, most lightweight PDF readers when it comes to installation.
Foxit let me tweak printing options considerably: I could choose whether to print the document only or include annotations; fit the content to the page margins; print multiple pages per sheet; or even choose a custom zoom size for the printout.

Cons: I cant complain about it as it a very good alternative to the more expensive pdf editing tools.
It can't fully protect your system from PDF exploits

Very good alternative to Acrobat

Pros: Easy user interface and very straightforward. The commands work very quickly and safely. One word is a very good pdf reader (for 4).

Cons: Hm, hard to say. Sometimes I can block the scanning system through this software so I use VueScan. I also do not see anywhere for registered users of our product aktion offer.

Foxit is a fast, small, good-looking PDF viewer, but not as good as Adobe Reader
