Hi, I've been using Foxit for a couple of years (even paid for it once to support them), but since the upgrade to version 5.0, Foxit has been a lot slower and just feels very bloated.

Are there any good alternatives? My next to try is probably Sumatra, although it seems like a lot of people really hate it for some reason.

I just need a good reader, as I already use Sonic PDF Creator to print from Websites to PDF, and PDFill for filling out forms (got a better alternative for that, too?).

Thanks!

My personal preference for PDF readers is PDF-XChange Viewer. It's free, give it a try and see if it works for you. If not, try another free one. Nothing to lose with the price. With pdf readers one size does not fit all.
