To heavy how Crypto? I've seen foxit before but never really researched it enough have an opinion. I know Adobe has added a some add ons one has to be aware of but how is it heavy? For the record, I don't ask questions to "test" knowledge or provoke an argument. I ask questions because I am seeking information. I've been a bit disgruntled with Adobe and a good alternative would be nice.

Adobe is a bit CPU intensive on some systems with limited resources. FoxIt reader is more light weight.
