I once installed this when I was searching for a better, lightweight and fast PDF reader for my new build.
My search terms were "free" and "open-source" and there it was: Sumatra PDF

I've convinced my whole family to throw away their old PDF reader (mostly FoxIT PDF Reader) and install Sumatra PDF immediately!

My mother was directly in love with the software because of it's simplicity.

I know convince everyone I know to install sumatra PDF because it get's really low attention in my opinion!

Nice! Loving this reader. This is what you call lightweight.

The auto-update within the program doesn't seem to detect the latest version, though. Maybe soon. I'll manually update it anyway, so it's alright.

best PDF reader out there if you ask me mostly because it loads up much quicker and feels lighter vs the usual Adobe bloated stuff.
