    I don't disagree, I would only like to know, where Foxit Reader is bloated.
    I've never installed it before, but 41MB download is a pretty hefty program, though the website claims it is small and fast: Foxit PDF Download Center | Foxit Software

    Compare with MS Reader, which is less than 5.

    EDIT** Acrobat Reader (DC) is over 180MB... quite larger.

    Just read a con about Foxit reader, installs adware by default. Just noting something from OP posting here.

    Thx DustSailer, I agree and appreciate your answer, however certain types of questions just aren't really worth answering, at least on the net.

    After Adobe Reader became bloated and bad I used Foxit Reader, but now Foxit Reader is also bloated and bad and have since moved on. I suggest others look into this as well.

    M$ Reader seems less bloated, by a lot, however, the file size comparison may not tell the whole story because M$ Reader might be using a lot of libraries that are included in W10.

    Why big concern over bloated by MB these days when have Gigabytes and Terabytes of space on your drives.Space is not my overall concern only with a third party software.

    *Shrug* IDunno. I do like as clean a computer as I can get, as some programs run in the background, or install other programs that do. This slows down the computer as to why I don't just fill it up with bloatware. Just found out I had a more useful PDF program on my computer, so I removed adobe, so I didn't have any of its background processes taking time up from faster operation.

    If you have a medium-sized (typically 180-260) SSD, you may need all the space you can get if you're running games and/or editing media. And small speed gains adds up! This probably just boils down to preference, really.

    True, now a game is as ones here would call it bloatware, talking from 7GB up to 50-60GB,more of a concern should i buy it, do i want to use the space. I have a second SSD just for games, was my solution to that knowing how much space they take up without worrying about my OS drive being big enough.

    Used Adobe before no issues, Foxit has good reviews though, new to me have to decide unless i go with the MS Reader app.
