|Reading PDF Files|
An alternative to the large Adobe Reader for viewing Portable Document Format (PDF) files. This small programme is fast and free. As new features are added, its size grows: version 2 was 1.5MB, v2.3 is 3.38MB and version 3.3 is 6.69MB.
Another alternative to Adobe Reader. This one has some more features, but is a larger file to download (v3.5.90 is 8.63MB).
The original (and some would argue the best) programme for reading PDF files. However, the Adobe Reader application is very large. You can get the latest or an older (smaller) version from this link.
