    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.

    I voted for none, because I use Chrome.

    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?
