Program 2 open PDF?

Hi there.

In the past I had so much trouble with Adobe Acrobat that I uninstalled it from my PC. The Armored Fury newsletters are PDF files. I need a program that will open these files. I want something that is simple to use and NOT a memory hog. Can anyone here recommend something that is SAFE to download?

Thanks and cheers from Peter

Foxit PDF Reader:

Agree with Saul's recommendation for Foxit.

Armoured Fury is produced in iWork's Pages on an Apple Mac, and I use Foxit PDF Reader and Adobe Acrobat Reader to check the final version for release on MS Windows (XP, Vista, and Win7). Adobe Acrobat gives me the most problems, not just with performance, but in rendering the PDF file properly - it usually renders things incorrectly. Foxit does a good job of rendering the PDF properly and is a lot faster than Adobe Acrobat.

For the record, I downloaded and installed Foxit PDF Reader based on Tanktrax' recommendation. I had no prior experience with it but know a good program when I try it. Thanks John!
