I like how the description says small yet the installer is bigger than Adobe's. Not to mention that it's actually slower.

People, if you want a lightweight PDF reader just use Sumatra and be done with it.

I tried this reader when it was on version 5 due to the speed. I don't know why, but Adobe Reader would usually feel slow on my lappy (Core 2 Duo @ 2.4 GHz).

I've been using it since that time and I'm pretty impress with the results :)

Plus, I really love all those UI features.

Adobe reader display CMYK colours correctly, other reader (from the last time I checked) do not. This is very important when creating custom graphics.
Shame as I'd jump ship as well otherwise.

99.9% of the time I use Sumatra also. :)

Wife's computer has to have Adobe for her bank site as NOTHING else will work correctly. I've e-mailed them many times how stupid I think that is!

Been using Foxit since ~v2.5 - will continue to do so, anyone who uses Acrobat Reader needs to switch.

I would use foxit again, but the forced cloud stuff puts me off using it nor recommending it.

i think you are forced to install it, but can then remove it separately once it has been installed, If i am remembering correctly
