For programs with the same functionality, the smaller, faster ones are always more popular. If Foxit Reader ended Adobe Reader’s future relying on its smaller file size and faster running speed, then PDF-XChange Viewer is considered to be the killer of Foxit Reader for the same reason. Namely, there is another PDF reader/viewer available now which is smaller, faster and more feature-rich than Foxit Reader.

PDF-XChange Viewer is a full-featured free PDF reader. It’s rich features, lightweight file size, renders a PDF file very fast, and runs steadily. It is worth mentioning that, when reading a large PDF document, the page turning and scrolling operations are both quite smooth. Especially its strong compatibility and text visual effects have surpassed many of its peers, even much better than Foxit Reader. Moreover, compared with Foxit Reader, it has the functions Foxit Reader doesn’t; even the functions they both have, its are more powerful. For example: its ranging (distance measurement) function is stronger, also the most suitable one for commercial use.

PDF-XChange Viewer comes with concise user interface and rich configuration and functional options, and is very easy to use. It supports tabbed browsing, batch searching, OCR, text and image extraction; allows to add annotations or notes to anywhere on a PDF document; also can be used as a PDF printer instead of the traditional print output method, and so on. However, PDF-XChange Viewer’s biggest advantage is that its document rendering speed is so fast that scrolling the PDF file with very big file size still has no delay at all. Especially on a machine with low configuration or when loading a high-resolution scanned file, this comparison result can be obvious, which is much better than any similar software.
