    Chrome or Edge on Win10 for viewing PDF files.

    Yeah I know but I still like to use Adobe 6 portable with that cool overlay image startup screen.

    Sumatra for the last 10 years because of its simplicity, but I've recently taken another look at Foxit portable and found it impressive.

    Although I prefer and use the old 6 for PDF's on Windows 8.1, on Windows 10 I am using Sumatra.

    One thing I cannot stand is opening PDF's in Edge. Ugh. Not only that but i'm lost trying to find how to edit/save in Edge and absolutely do not like hunting around on the new menu for favorites etc.

    The Edge browser. Not often enough to justify something more specialized.

    It has not been discontinued, despite what they claim, and is still receiving updates. It was last updated on the 27th of June.

    I did just download and install PDF-XChange Editor, but for now I'll continue using PDF-XChange Viewer.

    It is not being actively developed for two years and it is not receiving new features or fixes.
    The reason why there are still updates:

    For what I understood, PDF-XChange Viewer updates only update version number and installer, to keep track with PDF-XChange Editor versioning.
    The latest PDF-XChange Viewer content update was the mentioned version 2.5.0316.0, that resolved a vulnerability.

    Edit:
    I'm sorry, I overlooked mood's reply, that refers to a Tracker Support statement regarding PDF-XChange Viewer updates.
