    Hello,
    It was not beta. But it's an upgrade to a newer version.

    Does it read from the browser or do i still have to save it, and then read?
    Does it comply with the latest pdf standard?
    Is it missing anything important?
    Why, oh why doesn't Open office read pdf? Or it does already?

    it has always opened from the browser for me in both firefox and opera.
    never really open pdf's when using ie because i just use IE for windows update.

    Thanks lodore. I read somewhere that it didn't. Downloaded. Lets see if i can uninstall Adobe (features missing?).
    Do you know if it's missing anything important to read some pdf's?

    It must have been just a build update, This one is build 1312. The changelog had not been updated at the website the last time I checked.

    I jettisoned Adobe Reader some time ago, I haven't looked back. Foxit, I love it. One thing though "look for update" showed nothing on build 0912.

    The program updater on most of these type programs is usually slow getting updated. I got the new build this morning by using the download link that was provided in the updates post.

    Hello,
    Foxit opens pdfs in IE but not FF. But that's hardly an inconvenience for me.

    Hi,

    I don't understand this.
    I don't have Adobe and I don't use IE.
    But I use FF and Foxit and there are no problems.
    Also no probs with Opera.

    Hello,
    I'm an idiot. It works in all browsers.
    Sorry guys, I'm a bit sick with flu, not at my best 100%.
