I changed from Adobe to Foxit because Adobe's download manager is, quite frankly, a shambles and doesn't always work correctly. Now,I am going to move away from Foxit because of the toolbar. I don't mind products including things like toolbars so long as you can opt whether or not to install them during setup. True, you can disable/uninstall the plugin in your browser and actually uninstall it from Programs and Features, but that is not the point. If I wanted to install it, I would, but seeing as though I don't, then I don't. Being force-installed without having the option to choose is a big turn-off for me, and I suspect many others as well.
Here are some free alternatives, some of which have already been mentioned: Download Nitro PDF Reader Download Sumatra PDF - a free pdf reader http://www.visagesoft.com/downloads/...spdfreader.exe http://www.drm-x.com/download/Haihaisoft_PDF_Reader.exe
Having tried all of these, my favourite ATM is the Haihaisoft
reader. One of the nice features of this reader is that the icon of the PDF file isn't a generic one, but rather a miniaturised rendition of the first page of the document.
