    Sumatra PDF, the lightest PDF reader I've used. (Toolbar free, ad free, :D)

    PDF-XChange Viewer. It's the only one that has genuinely impressed me.

    foxit normally and sumatra for simple reading. i like pdfxchange but cant get past their HUGE memory requirements and when set to use a lower amount its just slow and choppy. if sumatra would add just a few features like being able to fill in pdf's it would be my only choice

    PDF X-Change's feature set is hard to beat, specifically it's "Comment and Markup Tools".
    (I also use GSView as a down-and-dirty lightweight viewer.)

    Freeware, but there is a vendor version.

    I agree.

    And with the recent version they have a superb feature: 'Recognize Text on Page using OCR...'
