"…In all seriousness FoxIt Software's PDF Reader deserves to be on millions and millions of computers. 
PDF Reader loads like greased lightening ...
PDF Reader has a simple yet truly elegant UI…"

"…I use the one from Foxit Software. It doesn't do  everything that Adobe Reader does, but it should be enough for almost everyone.
 If, for some reason, Adobe Reader can't be un-installed, then at least don't  make it the default program for opening PDFs, and be sure to turn off  Javascript…"

"Another free solution is provided by Foxit  Corporation with its PDF reader, now at version 3.0. Foxit Reader 3.0 boasts a  small download size (3.6MB versus 41.1MB for the Adobe 9.1 package), fast  launch speeds and a rich feature set...

We tried a 700-page PDF  manual comprising text and images, and with both apps, the application load  time coupled with file opening was less than two seconds. To ensure this wasn't  a tribute to the laptop's processor, an Atom notebook was also enlisted — with  similar results. "

"I spend much of my time reading and needing to  annotate PDF manuals and training materials. May I say how pleasantly surprised  I have been by your Foxit Reader (Pro Pack version)… It's fast, efficient, easy  to use, has a wealth of annotation and markup capabilities, and even comes in a  portable variant. I was absolutely shocked to discover that your support  department is available by telephone 24 hours a day, 7 days a week….
At its price point, this  software is an exceptional value. I found it to be extremely polished, capable,  and with a range of facilities far beyond what I was expecting… "

"…The third major new tool is a plug-in for Foxit  itself. Called the OnDemand Content Management, it lets you organize, share,  and edit content from within Foxit with other Foxit users. It makes Foxit  competitive with Google Docs, Zoho, and other Web-based collaborative tools.  Once the add-on has been installed, users should check out the program's  OnDemand instructions on the Menubar under Advanced and then OnDemand. The  service requires registration to use it, but thankfully, it's free…"

"When it comes to PDF readers, the abundance of free  and competent titles suggests that the need for anymore is unnecessary. The  Foxit PDF Reader is, however, slightly different....Note that this release is  much more than a PDF reader. Some of the new features include a form  designer…enhanced zoom tools, spell-checker for PDF forms, an improved  IE-plug-in and much more."

"... I recently switched to foxit pdf reader due to  Adobe becoming such a bloated pig. Foxit loads PDFs quickly with no splash  screen!
The best part about foxit  is its native ability to edit PDF forms (great for filling out those rebates!)  With the trial version of foxit, you can edit PDFs and print them for free, but  saving the edits will create an "evaluation" watermark. Registering  for the Foxit Pro Pack ($40) will let you edit/print/save for free without an  evaluation watermark.
Here's the deal - Foxit  currently has a deal where if you sign up and complete an offer on their page,  they'll give you a free key for their Pro pack. I just signed up for the efax  offer and used a virtual credit card number with $1 limit, and within 15  minutes I got my registration key. Heck, even without the pro pack, Foxit blows  acrobat out of the water with its speed ..."

"I never thought I would see the day where I could  free myself of Adobe Acrobat AND not have to complain every time someone sends  a PDF. Foxit Reader is my therapist for PDF's now. All the shakes, migraines,  and Irritable Bowel Syndrome that used to be associated with PDF's is now a  smile knowing your product will do exactly what it's supposed to.
P.S. Can't wait to start checking out the rest of the software you have to  offer."

"I'm trying out Foxit Reader for the first time, and  so far I'm impressed. It's an improvement over Adobe Reader in most respects.  It doesn't have all the bells, whistles and configurations, of Adobe Reader,  but I don't think I miss any of them."

by Runar  Bjarnason

"I love a lot of the features foxit pdf reader  provides; faster startup, faster page scroll, etc..."

by Larry  Rowlison

"Adobe Reader has been a pain in the ass for so long  with problems installing and running the program. Foxit took me under 2 minutes  to dowload, install and start up! I was so impressed and will never go back to  Adobe again. Great work!"

by Trevor  Walsh

"Just downloaded Foxit Reader 2.0 and I find it hard  to believe you packed so much into the new version of your PDF reader...  especially considering the small size of the program.
Actually the word 'brilliant' first comes to mind in describing your software.  Considering how much I have come to dislike anything that is over-bloated in  size and function, I was absolutely thrilled as I explored the features in your  'free' version of the program.
What a pure work of genious Foxit Reader is! I am anxious to recommend this  software to anybody I can."

by John  A Collins, Texada Island, BC, Canada

"Thank you for Foxit Reader!!! =)
 It's amazingly fast! The best pdf reader I've ever had!
 If I some day want to have a pdf creator, I know where I'm going to buy it."

"I just want to thank you for releasing Foxit Reader  for free. I really hate Acrobat because it sucks so many resources and is so  slow. Foxit is a lot faster and I love it. You guys rock!"

by Albert  Meyer

"I really enjoy the softwares of your company and I  am the first one in our university to replace the Adobe Reader with Foxit  Reader soon afer the debut of it. And then I have tried other softwares of your  company such as PDF Creator and PDF Editor finding them samll-sized,  fast-launched and easy-of-use. So I consider buying a copy."

"This is a fan letter -- After having Adobe Reader  conflict with my other programs, drag my system down to a crawl and force  numerous reboots every time I had to deal with a pdf file, I am ecstatic about  Foxit Reader."

by Karen  Chun, in USA

"The reason I wrote you is that I find FoxIt Pdf  Reader a very fast, easy to install pdf viewer and nothing in the world could  convince me to stick again in my computer a 20MB and 10 seconds loading Adobe  Acrobat Reader!"

by Emilian  Scarlat, in Romania

"I want to thank you for your excellent product Foxit  PDF Reader: it's small and fast. I use it at home for a long time."

"I'm not sure if this is the right e/m address to  send my comment too, but...I just wanted to tell you Thanks! I wasted days and  hours on trying to download adobe reader to my new computer,it has windows xp,  and spoke with the adobe techs for hours and had to pay for their tech support,  and I could not get adobe downloaded. I am going back to school, I work  fulltime and have a child so I have to take my courses online. If I could not  open, read, print and send pdf files, I would not be able to take the courses.  I finally went to 'techguy' forum and several people suggested 'Foxit' instead  of adobe. It worked!!!!!! I now have the admissions packet and can get in to  the class before the cut off. I feel computer illiterate so I was really really  frustrated, but not now!!"

"Congratulations! After several days going through  the hoops trying to get the latest version of Acrobat to work I gave up and  downloaded Foxit Reader 2.0.
Fantastic program! fast to install and so much faster than poor old acrobat to  load documents. Well done and Thank you."

by Linton  Smith, Perth, Western Australia

"Thank you for such a wonderful (no bloatware) coded  program. Please keep up the great efforts. I tell everyone about your PDF  reader. Thanks again."
