Free PDF Reader
As you can guess, Free PDF Reader from PDFZilla, is a free application for reading and viewing PDF documents. It has a simple user interface wrapped around a standard explorer frame. Free PDF Reader supports several advanced features including multi view mode, page rotation, text copy, page snapshot and PDF printing. We also like it’s powerful batch-mode, which allows you to convert 1000+ PDF files in bulk! Another handy feature is support for more than 20 languages including English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and all Unicode Language PDF Files. Overall, Free PDF Reader is a great little application that’s easy to use and simple to navigate. AS you’d expect, the downside is it only has some basic features and lacks more advanced functionality that comes with paid for products.
