PDF reader is an application that has become the needs of computer users today. There is a full-featured applications like Adobe Reader, but with performance weight and size of the installation that is not small, the application is like Foxit Reader, an online PDF reader such as Google docs Viewer and super lightweight and fast applications such as Sumatra PDF.
One of the most lightweight PDF reader and quickly is Sumatra PDF. If we only need to read PDF documents only (no need to edit or add annotation features etc.) and may be looking for a lightweight alternative to Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader, Sumatra PDF then can be the solution. Recently released the latest version of Sumatra PDF, Sumatra PDF 1.6 with various fixes and additional features.
Aside from being able to open PDF files quickly, Sumatra PDF can also be used to read XPS files, DjVu, CBZ, LaTeX and CBR. DjVu including document formats have been widely used to scan the document because its relatively small size compared to PDF, and these features were added in version 1.6 this. Special to read XPS files, it is necessary to Ghostscript on your computer.
Besides loading very quickly, this application also comes with simple menus (standard) and easy to use. Sumatra PDF can also be used as an Image Viewer or application to open / view the picture (just drag the folder containing the image and place it in sumatra PDF). The application also will display a list of PDFs that have been opened in a thumbnail so it is quite helpful.
Sumatra PDF can be run on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. And this application is also a free open source so that the programmer who is studying or developing it can also download the source code. Oh yes, Sumatra PDF was developed by Krzysztof Kowalczyk.
