About Foxit Reader

Editors Review
Everyone seems to start off with Adobe Reader, and as effective a solution as that application is, it tends to be a memory and performance hog on some weaker machines. Foxit Reader resolves such a situation by remaining fully featured and effective, while reducing memory footprint and CPU usage as well. It doesn't sacrifice functionality to do this, which makes it an amazing alternative to the more popular Adobe solution.
