Any recommendations for a PDF viewer for Windows? Preferably open-source, of course, but to be honest with you I'm ready to use anything that isn't Adobe Reader 🤮
Alright, I have done some testing and here's my verdict:
— Sumatra (@sotolf, @iooioio) — really snappy — love it!
— Foxit (@sotolf, @kev) — not open-source, but free and the only one that supports XFA
— muPDF (@yyp) — dead simple (maybe too simple 😅) and doesn't work as good on big PDFs as Sumatra does
— XpdfReader — similar to Sumatra: really snappy and with cleaner (albeit uglier) interface
— Okular (@yyf) — couldn't install since it's only available in MS Store :(
@NickKaramoff I used to run mupdf under WSL + VcXsrv (or something, don't remember the name). Works just fine. Also I think KDE ported Okular to Windows.
@NickKaramoff if you need an app only for reading pdf Sumatra will be enough for you. It's lightweight and open source.
