My Foxit PDF reader was updated to V6.02.
GAWD-AWFUL HORRIBLE, with an MS-Office-like ribbon. Absolutely useless crap version! :evil:
So I uninstalled it and reloaded the previous V5 version. :D
Then I looked on Google with this search "foxit reader v6 crap"
At the bottom of the first page with search results there was this notice:

In response to a complaint we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 1 result(s) from this page.
If you wish, you may read the DMCA complaint that caused the removal(s) at ChillingEffects.org.


Checking the omitted link, it shows a huge list of what looks like pirated(?) software... WTF?

I was aghast at what I saw as well!

I did find an option under:

File>>UI Options>>Change toolbar mode>> choose 'Classic Toolbar Mode'

Choosing 'Classic Toolbar Mode' reverted my GUI back to what I am used to seeing :)

I'd never heard of 'Foxit'. Perhaps I am naïve but Adobe Reader seems to do the job and it has been my choice to view any pdf.
So what is the benefit of Foxit?

It's personal preference in my case. Foxit displays all PDFs I have come across just fine. The issue that cropped up was with the latest update and the implementation of a MS Word type ribbon. I think it looks tacky and terrible. I changed the skin back to classic tabs which I like. I've been using Foxit for ~2 years now and it is my choice for PDF viewer/editor. Just used to it and its features I suppose :)

Thank you for the rationale, emeraldgirl08. I think I'll stick with Adobe ... even if it might take up a lot of space.
Foxit sounds very dodgy!

Au contraire. I am a student and the last thing I need is a dodgy PDF reader/editor. Foxit has not failed me in my ability to generate PDF content as well as edit my PDFs. I am using it right now downloading peer-reviews and researching. I also place notes in PDF for a couple of my courses. My motto is 'use whatever works for you' :)

+1 for Foxit, I'm usings its portable version since at least 5 years. It's really lightweight, more responsive and less intrusive than Adobe

Just my 2 cents...
