Viewer seem to be left outside as they want you to start using the editor that has plenty of non usable parts as they are pay parts. I'm sure it works well as in the Internet it is presented as one of the big contenders, and also here there have been some recommendations that way.
I've tested Nitro and Sumatra on a virtual machine as nitro seems to be the alternative to foxit and Sumatra has been the most suggested one.
Both are fast on my computer, Nitro seems to do more things, but it also installs a printer driver which in my case is not needed so I've decided to go the Sumatra way. By now it works as expected.
I used to like foxit, but haven't used it in a couple of years. Windows comes with a built-in pdf reader and Google Chrome also has a PDF reader, so...

Personally I have decided to use the paid version of NitroPDF just because I liked the free version and had a need for the functionality of the paid version. Haven't regret it. My company installs Acrobat on my machine as default but I tend to uninstall it again
As a pure PDF reader I actually often use Chrome with a PDF viewer extension.
Nitro's reader works fine, but I had enough problems with the print driver in their professional version that I switched to Foxit. Nitro's free print driver works ok, but I found the file size of the resulting documents was larger, and the resolution was lower quality.
Given the comments in this thread regarding Foxit, I need to dig a bit deeper into that. I really like the editor and the reader comes up faster than others I've tried, but if it's sending telemetry to anyone, I'm looking for a replacement.
For me, SumatraPDF is as good as it gets (as far as reading goes). It is very fast, looks really classic and obeys the PDF restriction rules and best of all is, its free .
Also, one really handy feature I find is that it remembers where you left off reading in a PDF and opens from there next time you want to read.
I am not the one who knocks. I never knock.
In fact, I hate knocking. Just barge in will'Ya?
SumatraPDF, it's fast with rendering, opens almost instantly, reguarly updated and offers tabs (which I prefer not to use) some old versions also didn't obey print-locked documents which is handy! I use CutePDF as a printer driver (Win7)
