    This should definitely be included...

    Nitro PDF Reader: Nitro PDF Reader — The PDF Reader, Reimagined

    Great find! This is definitely better than FoxIt.
    Update: I am beginning to like this software less and less.

    I did an upgrade tonight and it wiped out all my settings and took away my default PDF viewer from Adobe Reader. I spent a lot of time 8 months ago picking my settings when I started using this software so it was difficult to remember where they all were.

    Plus on a side note: This software is difficult to use and understand when editing PDFs it does not remotely follow any normal windows editing, so you have to learn a whole new system. If the vendor would fix the editing and now the wiping out of settings I believe the software would be much much better. -WS

    It's still in BETA - for this reason , if you report your issues back you may find them quite helpfull - they say that they want the development to be user driven and my brief visits to their site look encouraging

    BETA??? I was wondering how version 6.1 could be BETA and I have been using it for almost a year...hummmm....I clicked the link and now see they are making a READER and I have the Professional version. My bad. :)

    But if this is a full blown Professional Version and it acts this way, my fear is the READER will not be much better.

    Here is what I have; same company: Nitro PDF Software — Create & Edit PDF Files

    Here is a new system booster I came across
    Advanced SystemCare Free - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

    New browser Avant Browser Home - Avant Browser, an ultra-fast browser with AutoFills, Flash Filter, AD/Popup Blocker, Online Bookmarks, Pirvate Browsing and RSS Reader, but NO Memory leak! I have been using it for a while, and I like it a lot. It is definitely more secure than IE, and lighter too.

    The link to BitKinex in the free programs list doesn't work.
    It should be BitKinex

    Word of Warning... Advanced SystemCare is complete Garbage. Good for trashing an enemies system if you feel so inclined. Otherwise, avoid it. Just some friendly advice.
