Foxit pdf reader: fast!

This post is not about Python, contrary to this blog's purpose - but I just had to write about Foxit pdf reader . It is fast. Incredibly fast compared with Adobe's Reader. When it is set as the system's default browser, it can be used with Firefox (just do Tools -> Options -> Downloads -> Plugins -> disable viewing PDF files with plugin). The only drawback I can see is that it is a Windows only product. You can even type in your own text on a page prior to printing.
