I’ve been using Adobe Reader for a long, long, looooooong time. You get comfortable with an application and that’s what you use. However, what in God’s name is Adobe Atmosphere and why does it need to update when Reader updates? Can you say bloatware?
That being said, I’m not one to jump for a new application when the one I’m using works just fine. But when it takes 90 seconds for Reader to open, using up most of my computers processing power, I think it’s time for a change.
Enter Foxit software. Foxit pdf reader is a small program that will read your pdf files just like Adobe. I’ve only just started using it, and I’m sure there are features that aren’t included. If you just want to read pdf files, this may be an alternative. Best part… it’s free.
