Foxit Reader


Recommended Posts



Whether you're a consumer, business, government agency, or educational organization, you need to read and annotate PDF documents and fill out PDF forms. You need your PDF Reader to be:

•Fast - so you're not waiting forever to read files.

•Lightweight - so it's easily deployable and doesn't exhaust system resources.

•Secure - so you don't get infected with viruses and can keep sensitive information safe.

•A Platform - so you can extend the Reader by creating your own value added capabilities for internal use or for resale.

The Foxit Reader is a small, 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 add text to PDF documents. Foxit Reader has a small footprint that starts up instantly, 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, editing 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.

Minor update: Included plugins: Firefox Plugin, Eastern Asian Language Support & Foxit Spell Checker.

Just to inform: Only 3 plugins are compatible with Reader 5.0

If you look under 'Critical Add-ons in Foxit Reader' list, only first 3 plugins are compatible with Reader 5.0

The rest are not compatible

Pls uninstall any existing Foxit Reader before you manually install this one. This is to make sure uninstall will work properly.

Can you pick it up at wincert.net? I don't have time to update posting. (My online time fairly limited nowadays.)

Dun think I will update rest of my addon posted at here at MSFN.
