Foxit PDF Reader 3.0 for Windows now works with Firefox
Last week the Foxit team released version 3.0, with a ton of updates. Possibly the most exiciting is a plugin for Firefox that lets you open documents in your web browser. Adobe has offered this feature for ages, but again, it often takes forever to load. To be honest, the Foxit plugin isn't exactly a speed demon. You may find it faster to download some files and open them in the desktop version of Foxit Reader. But it's nice to have the option of opening them in your browser.
Here are a few other new features:
- Thumbnail previews of each page
- Attachment panel shows list of files attached to a PDF and allows you to open, delete, or perform other actions on them
- The text select tool now also lets you add annotations like highlights, strikeout, or underline
- You can transfer your preference settings by copying an INI file
- New Foxit OnDemand Content Management add-on allows users to share and collaborate on documents online
