Streamlined, fast and packed with features, FoxIt Reader is the best free PDF reader and editor around. Make PDFs from scratch or by converting existing documents, add comments, embed images and videos, and share the resulting PDFs via DropBox, OneDrive or Google Drive.
Why you need it
Foxit Reader works seamlessly with the software and services you already use, and integrates with Windows so perfectly you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it. It supports Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint document formats, is fully compatible with all the main cloud storage services, and integrates with the right-click context menu so you don’t even need to think about it.
Its interface is clear and intuitive, and works much like the Ribbon system in Microsoft Office. Tabbed browsing lets you manage multiple PDFs at once, and you can create your own custom toolbars for quick access to your favorite options.
If that isn’t enough, there’s also a Firefox plugin to make Foxit Reader the default option for displaying PDFs in your browser, and a downloadable spellchecker plugin that checks any text you type into forms.
