(Well, maybe not just a Tekkie Tool; it’s quite a useful tool for anyone to carry on a thumb drive.)
If you have ever had to read a PDF file on a PC that doesn’t have a PDF reader installed, then Foxit Software’s Foxit Reader is for you. At less than 3MB installed (a single executable file), Foxit Reader is a lean, mean, PDF-reading machine. Compare this with 10-20MB just to download Adobe reader.
Don’t get me wrong, I use Adobe’s products on all of my systems; but I also work on systems in secure networks where I don’t have authorization to install software without approval. And since I carry lots of documentation and troubleshooting checklists in PDF format on my USB thumb drive, I’m stymied when I come upon one of these systems.
