The Fastest PDF Reader and it's freeware
Posted by: Rapido
Date: February 04, 2009 01:36AM

Hi! I tried this pdf viewer: http://www.pdfxviewer.com/ and it opens documents before you can blink with your eye. The portable works well at your harddrive as at the usb-stick. I have not tried the regular version but i'm gonna do so soon. Check it out.

Yours: Rapido

PDFxViewer is indeed a very fine choice.
However those who just need a basic PDF viewer as fast as PDFxViewer while consuming less resources will opt for Foxit.
My early FoxitViewer (slightly modified German flavor of v1.2 <grins>) has 800kb and consumes 6.068KB opening the same PDF which for PDFxViewer needs more than 20.000kb.

Yes. IMHO for the moment Sumatra it the worst choice among the 3.

Yogi,

I too am a big fan of FoxIt. Use both the Reader (v2.2) and the Editor (2.0).

Vergessen?

Runter geladen.
Habe noch nicht in die Dateien gesehen, murkse grade an einem neuem Chrome herum.
Wir werden es für 1.9 brauchen.

Die Reader installiere/probiere ich vermutl. erst, wenn ich wieder pdf brauche.
Ich nutze bei vielen Dingen ältere Programme mit ausreichender Funktionalität.

I like Foxit Reader. It's also have a Firefox plugin for viewing PDF inside browser and it works with K-Meleon smiling smiley Using this plugin instead of Adobe Reader also prevents one funny bug from causing - earlier, when I opened PDFs with Adobe Reader plugin, the K-Meleon's window title text became a random symbol (different for each tab) instead of tab name, until restart smiling smiley

Ditto.
Meine beliebteste alte Perle ist Code-Genie.
Quelltext-Betrachter für K-M/Opera, Notepad-Ersatz, Hex-Betrachter, Prüfsummen erstellen usw. Sehr schnell und alles nur 960kb.
Falls Du diesen Editor nicht kennst und ausprobieren möchtest kann ich Dir die V-version 3.11.12 gerne per Mail verschicken.

1.) Meist muss der eingebaute Editor von eXec meinem 1.2 MB großen uralten Dateimanager herhalten. Im Vergleich dazu ist sogar Notepad ein Wunderwerk.
Nehme Pspad oder Phase5, wenn mehr Funktion gebraucht wird.

2.) Mit Quelltext-Betrachter hast du mich auf eine Idee gebracht, danke.
Code-Genie. 4.02.03 = 1MB ist doch auch noch schnell?
.

Sonst, schick 3.11.12 an - sterntalerBEIhtp-tel.de - da habe ich Pop-Mail.
Wenn 3.11.12 de-De ist, sowieso. 4.02.03 = nur en-US.

FireFox Foxit plugin?



I prefer the internal name: "Foxit Reader Plugin for Mozilla"

Foxit version 3 includes it by default.

New Features:
8. Firefox Support

p.s. For Foxit 2 the plugin was AFAIK available via their support forum.

@guenter

Wie erwartet, ist zwischen v4.02.03 und v3.11.12 kein Geschwindigkeitsunterschied.
Leider habe ich auch nur die en-US.

I have the Haihaisoft reader running. It is fast. I don't think I see any fill in forms stuff. But also I don't think I have a PDF with fill in blanks part.

I have just been looking at the PDF readers on my machine. I have Adobe Reader 9 and Haihaisoft. While it is true that Adobe has more features, I begin to wonder if those features are worth 195 MB. The reader 9 folder is 198 MB and Haihaisoft is 3.4 MB. If you are just interested in reading PDF files that you download or receive, the Haihaisoft product may provide all the features you require.

Size matters but its priority is low.
IMO there are far more important priorities to be taken into consideration.
- Rendering: ability, quality, speed
- Functionality (requirements may hugely differ among users)
- Manageability
- Usage of ressources
- Size

Since there is no perfect software, we end up sticking with what we think to be the best compromise, fitting best our needs ;)

THE BEST PDF READER IS CALLED "FoxitPDF_Reader", IT IS FAST, DOESN´T NEED INSTALATION (copy exe to main directory), AND ITS ONLY 1.7mB

FASTER...FASTER....FASTER......Give it a chance !!

By the way, ultimately, the fastest PDF viewer is STDU Viewer, available from: http://www.stdutility.com/index.html . As far as loading time is concerned, nothing beats it! See for yourselves!
