Alternative PDF Viewer

Adobe Reader isn't the only PDF viewer software on the market. In fact, there is a great open source product on the market that Computer Tutor For Seniors recommends called Foxit Reader. Not only will your PDF files load quicker but Foxit Reader only uses 11.12mb of disk space in comparison to the 222mb of disk space that Acrobat Reader 9 uses. Avoid the security flaws of Acrobat Reader, free up your hard disk space and try Foxit Reader.


  1. I agree Foxit is an excellent pdf reader if you just want the barebones without the fluff. How Adobe managed to bloat Acrobat to a 200+Mb application is beyond me. I imagine alot of it has to do with all the helper apps for updating and preloading.

  2. Thank you for posting this article. I am having problems with Adobe Acrobat and I am goind to try this instead! Thanks Again!
