Free Nitro PDF Reader Is A Decent Foxit Reader Alternative

I have always been a big fan of Foxit reader which I have promoted as the best way to view PDF files and also as one of the most Handy PDF Tools and Services you should definitely use.

However, over time there are several decent alternatives which are released, and the Nitro PDF team has done the same by releasing the Free Nitro PDF Reader to users.

If you are a Microsoft Office user, you will find some familiarity with the new software as it has a MS Office Ribbon-style user interface. In addition to that, Nitro Reader also has context-intelligent UI and tools which only displays navigation panels to appear on when relevant parts of the PDF have opened.

Nitro PDF also has premium collaboration tools which allows users to comment and review, use sticky notes and ability to reply to individual annotations and comments. The software also has a signature stamping function which will allow you to add your scanned or handwritten signature to the PDF file.

If you have used clients like Outlook in Office 2007 or , you might be familiar with the preview feature, however, previewing PDF files was not directly possible unless you used additional plugins to be able to preview PDF or ZIP files in Outlook. However, after installing Nitro Reader you will be able to preview PDF files in Outlook.

There are also several other interesting features in this software including a Snapshot tool to capture and send selected areas of a PDF to the clipboard and ability to disable JavaScript and restrict web access from the PDF.

Techie Buzz Verdict


Nitro PDF reader is definitely a software worth downloading. Not only does it allow you to read PDF files, it also allows you to edit PDF files, fill-in and save forms and more.

Nitro PDF Reader is still in beta and can be download for Windows 32 bit and 64 bit OS from the download link given below.
