Foxit Reader 3
Foxit Reader 3 has recently been released and it's a worthy upgrade. Again, you can download the ZIP and simply extract the EXE in to any directory you want meaning you can run it from a USB stick). At 7Mb, and 1 file, it's a pleasantly small and simple bit of kit. As with previous releases the speed of rendering PDFs is excellent, with functions supporting thumbnails and layers added in this release. The latter is particularly welcome as GeoPDFs (and layers) have become far more prevalent. Thoroughly recommended.
