Foxit PDF Reader has a small footprint that starts up instantly, renders PDF files quickly and uses very little memory, which is especially important with today’s handheld devices. It is packed full of convenient and easy to use viewing, editing and printing features that make document collaboration simple.

Foxit PDF Reader 12 provides an excellent alternative to the Adobe Reader on any computer running the Windows operating system. View, print, and collaborate easily using Foxit PDF Reader.

Whether you’re a consumer, business, government agency, or educational organization, you need to read and annotate PDF documents and fill out PDF forms. You need your Foxit PDF Reader to be:

  • Fast – so you’re not waiting forever to read files.
  • Lightweight – so it’s easily deployable and doesn’t exhaust system resources.
  • Secure – so you don’t get infected with viruses and can keep sensitive information safe.
  • A Platform – so you can extend the Reader by creating your own value added capabilities for internal use or for resale.

Foxit PDF Reader provides three different ways for you to read PDF files: multi-tab browsing, single document interface mode, and multiple document interface mode. The multi-tab browsing feature enables you to open multiple files in a single instance. If you already have a PDF file open and then you double-click another PDF file, it will be opened in the same window. The single document interface mode enables you to open multiple instances of Foxit Reader.
