Foxit Reader

Foxit Reader 4.1

Open, edit, and print any PDF documents on your Mac.

Foxit Reader is more than just a utility for viewing PDF documents on your Mac. With its help, you can fill forms, add signatures to your PDFs, and print the imported documents with just a few clicks.

The program comes with a straightforward interface, provides you with multiple PDF reading options, and gives you access to a wide range of editing tools. It also brings you an integrated search tool which helps you immediately find the phrases or terms you're looking for.

Another great aspect is that it offers you multi-tab support and brings you a built-in tool for bookmarking your PDF documents.

Sadly, compared to the Windows version of this program, the application comes with a small amount of useful features. For instance, it lacks an option to export PDF documents to other formats, such as DOC, PNG, etc.

Personally, I don't think it's worth installing this utility on your Mac, even though it comes without a price. Mac's Preview program provides you with almost identical features. Furthermore, you can easily find better solutions for reading, editing, and converting your PDF files that work great and come with reasonable price.
