SumatraPDF viewer - A light weight PDF reader

In my windows machine, I havent installed any PDF reader since I was not using windows system often. Yesterday I came across a light weight PDF viewer for windows by name Sumatra PDF viewer.

I liked it very much for the following reasons:
1. Its light weight compared to Adobe Acrobat reader.
2. It serves its purpose of showing the pdf files cleanly.
3. Its a freesoftware .

I have installed it and started using it as my primary and only PDF viewer.

Of cource it has few sortcomings too. Right now it doesnt have printing support. But I hope soon these features will be available since its a freesoftware. And by nature freesoftwares evolves thro community participation
