Foxit Reader is a multilingual PDF reader. Both the basic and full version readers can be downloaded for free. Foxit Reader is notable for its short load time and small filesize, and has been compared favorably to Adobe Reader. The MS Windows version allows annotating and saving unfinished PDF forms, FDF import/export, converting to text, highlighting and drawing.

Foxit Reader v3.x is available for 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows 2000 through 7,[4] Windows Mobile 2003 and 5.0, and Windows CE 4.2 and 5.0. It allows Windows 98/ME to open Acrobat version 7 and 8 files, which the current version of Adobe’s Acrobat reader for those operating systems will not. It also supports the U3 smart drive when used with Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Foxit Reader 2.0 is the last version which runs on Windows 95, Windows NT 4.0, Windows 98, and Windows Me. Since version 3.0 Foxit Reader for Windows requires Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/7.

Foxit Reader is a fast, free, lightweight alternative to Adobe Reader for opening and displaying PDF files. It's also feature-packed, though it lacks the print-to-PDF and conversion capabilities of fellow freebie Nitro PDF Reader.


  • Incredibly small: The download size of Foxit Reader is just a fraction of Acrobat Reader 50 M size.
  • Breezing-fast: When you run Foxit Reader, it launches instantly without any delay. You are not forced to view an annoying splash window displaying company logo, author names, etc.
  • Annotation tool: Have you ever wished to annotate (or comment on) a PDF document when you are reading it? Foxit Reader allows you to draw graphics, highlight text, type text and make notes on a PDF document and then print out or save the annotated document.
  • Text converter: You may convert the whole PDF document into a simple text file.
  • High security and privacy: Foxit Reader highly respects the security and privacy of users and will never connect to the Internet without users' permission. While other PDF readers often silently connect to the Internet in the background. Foxit PDF Reader does not contain any spyware.

  •  The following is a list of compelling advantages of Foxit Reader:
  • Breezing-fast: When you run Foxit Reader, it launches instantly without any delay.
  • Annotation tool: Have you ever wished to annotate (or comment on) a PDF document when you are reading it? Foxit Reader allows you to draw graphics, highlight text, type text and make notes on a PDF document and then print out or save the annotated document.

Foxit Reader 5.0 still includes many of the useful features that its rival, Adobe Reader, doesn't. There's tabbed PDF viewing, text-only view, rulers, Safe Mode, and several annotation tools for things like highlighting and commenting. Meanwhile, 5.0 has added a few conveniences that give it an extra edge, including XFA form filling, support for Microsoft RMS-protected files, and previews in Outlook.

Overall, we think the new Foxit Reader is a worthwhile download. While it may not be perfect--it can't create PDFs, and it pesters users with add-ons and upgrades--it's still a solid alternative to Adobe Reader.
