Foxit Reader

Foxit Reader

The Foxit Reader is a fast, and feature rich PDF viewer which allows you to open, view, and print any PDF file. Unlike other free PDF readers, Foxit Reader also includes easy to use collaboration features like the ability to add annotations, fill out forms, and share information with social networks. Foxit Reader renders PDF files quickly and uses very little memory, which is especially important with today's handheld devices.

The Foxit Reader is packed full of convenient and easy to use viewing, commenting and printing features that make document collaboration simple. Foxit Reader's secure platform insures worry free operation against malicious virus and provides a secure and reliable digital signature verification platform for exchanging electronics documents without putting the user at risk from falsified documents.

Foxit Reader changelog:

  • Better accessibility - Use single key accelerators to access commands or perform some actions, improving the application accessibility to make the reading and working with PDF files more accessible.
  • Reflow upon magnification - Reflow a PDF file to temporarily present it as a single column that is the width of the document pane, which makes the document easier to read when magnified on a standard monitor, without scrolling horizontally to read the text.
  • Find Command - Find a command by typing the command name and bring features to your fingertips with ease.
  • Help Center - Provide a Help Center to help users search and find online help conveniently.
