Today’s App-Day Monday post is about Foxit PDF Reader, an alternative PDF document reader.
Foxit PDF reader may be one of the easiest ways around to both speed up some processes of your computer and guard yourself against an ever-increasing exposure to certain malicious security flaws related to running Adobe Acrobat Reader on your computer. While there are ways you can lock down your Acrobat Reader program to keep your guard up, I switched my main PC to Foxit three months ago and have since moved all my other computers to the alternative PDF reader because its quick, small and I feel better about knowing it’s not being attacked as aggressively as Adobe’s reader is.
The PDF reader, self-proclaimed as the “no bloat” alternative to Adobe’s PDF Reader will speed up your PDF launch speed enough you will not dread opening PDF attachments anymore.
From the Foxit Website: “Foxit PDF Reader is a small, fast, and feature rich PDF viewer for Microsoft Windows, which allows you to open, view, and print any PDF file. Foxit PDF Reader is secure, offering 3-three levels of PDF viewing security to protect against malicious PDF files.”
