Foxit Reader: A Better PDF Viewer

I have used Adobe Reader as my PDF viewer many years. But Adobe Reader became fatter and fatter recently. Today when I opened three PDF files with it, my computer became very busy and slow. I open the task manager of Windows. To my surprice, the Adobe Reader used over 100 MB memory space! So I wanted to look for another PDF viewer.

I found Foxit Reader just now. Many people think it's better than Adobe Reader because it's smaller and faster. I have tried it. Very fast even I open five PDF files. That's it.

The disadvantage of Foxit Reader is the font is not as clear as Adobe Reader. I don't know why it is.

Its a good option but I am not convinced that its better than adobe. In every way adobe is far better than foxit. The only thing that strikes is that adobe takes more memory space as compared to foxit.
