Top 5 alternatives to Adobe Reader



  • Updated:

PDF logoIn view of the fact that Yahoo have announced they’ve reached a deal to insert adverts into Adobe’s PDF reader, I thought I’d give you 5 solid alternatives that you can use. There are many good reasons to not use Adobe Reader anyway, not least that it’s terribly bloated with plug-ins and extensions that take an age to load before you actually see the PDF document. This latest announcement will surely mean that things are set to get even slower and so there’s never been a better time to try these.

  • Foxit Reader – Super lightweight and effective PDF reader
  • PDF2Word – Bypass the PDF format completely and read it in Word
  • Sumatra PDF – Small, fast and lightweight PDF reader
