    Nitro Pdf, you have a PDF reader and creator in same time without the need of a third party apps (ghostscript,etc...)

    If you looking for the smallest PDF reader, give Sumatra PDF a try. It's definitely no frills, but it's very quick.

    I've used both Sumatra and Foxit over the years, but I wasn't very pleased with their rendering quality. I use the free PDF-XChange Viewer. Not as light as Foxit, but quite a bit lighter than Adobe. It's full featured and the PDF's look great.

    I have mostly used Adobe Reader, only because I have not really tried any of the others, but I do like it how Sumatra PDF and Foxit Readeris are portable.

    Foxit Reader
    Sumatra PDF

    None. I use SumatraPDF for local files and Chrome has a built-in PDF viewer for online viewing, which can also Print to PDF.

    You can use CutePDF, for web browsers that can't print to PDF.

    I like Foxit because of its simplicity. Replaced Adobe with it about 3 years ago and haven't look back.

    Same as HeffeD, PDF-XChange Viewer is almost as light as Foxit [which has had it's own fair share of mild controversy over installing toolbars, etc.], which I've also used and a credit should be given to its lightness and speed. I also use NitroPDF Professional, which is pretty good, but getting too close for comfort to Adobe. Tried Nitro PDF Reader for a while, it just felt a bit "middle of the road"...

    I was just using Sumatra PDF and I thought of trying out Foxit Reader again. Replaced Sumatra PDF with this one since it's just as fast and it renders better than the latter.

    For me Foxit Reader, beside of its an alernative PDF reader. Size of installer is really cut down unlike to Adobe Reader.

    Adobe Reader has a bad reputation since Adobe failed to patch exploited bugs on time. Nitro PDF Reader offers many features but it seemed slower to me compared with Foxit. PDF-XChange Viewer and Foxit Reader are my favorites.

    I suppose you use Chrome's PDF viewer offline too?
