If you want to view a PDF file, you could use Adobe’s own product, Adobe Reader. Or you could use an application that is not created by Adobe, the California-based company that specializes in creating multimedia and creativity software products. There are plenty of alternatives out there.

You could for example use the Foxit Corporation-developed Foxit PDF Reader. There is a simple reason why you would want to use Foxit PDF Reader – the latest version, version 3.3, comes with a Safe Mode Feature that provides enhanced protection against PDF attacks.

Foxit PDF Reader presents a warning message whenever an executable command embedded in a PDF document is run. If the user wants to disable all external commands, Foxit PDF Reader 3.3 can do this – while Safe Mode is turned on, no external commands will be executed by Foxit Reader.

"The Foxit PDF Reader is an integral part of our business and has millions loyal followers. With over 100 million downloads and millions of happy users, we want to make sure we are taking every step in enhancing their user experience and ensuring their document safety" said Alex Alexander, AVP, Corporate Marketing for Foxit Corporation.

Here is a bit of good news for Foxit PDF Reader 3.2 users. Version 3.2 of the application automatically installed the Foxit toolbar – the user wasn’t even asked if he or she would like to install the toolbar. The development team at the Foxit Corporation acknowledged this was an error that did not make for a very pleasurable user experience. So in version 3.3 this issue was addressed. Users are now asked if they would like to install the toolbar or not.

If you would like to get Foxit PDF Reader v. 3.3, you can download the application by clicking here (download weighs in at close to 7MB).
