Looking for a decent, free PDF reader. I'm tried of Adobe Reader's slowness and breakiness :rolleyes:

Thanks,
Craig.

Foxit and Sumatra are both quite good. Not sure which one to go for at the minute. Quite like Sumatra for it's simpleness & Foxit as it's very similar to Adobe Reader.

I just can't read them off my pc screen. Have to print them out every time. Motherboard manuals, I can read, but I just can't take any info in when it comes to articles in scientific journals or research.

Same. It's a shame so many documents are PDF - pretty much forces me to install a PDF reader.

Yeah, I noticed that when testing it earlier, Sumatra was all extremely slow when it came to rendering largish PDFs.

I really like Foxit at the moment, looks like Adobe Reader & is extremely quick :)

Thanks everyone for the suggestions etc.

I wouldnt like to imagine the computing world without a PDF reader.. that would be a nightmare.....

PDFs is a document container, every machine has to have it!
