    While it will not necessarily avoid any 0-day vulnerabilities, there is a slimmed down version of Adobe Reader currently maintained by XhmikosR, called "Adobe Reader Lite." Adobe Reader Lite has been around for a few years now, going back to at least Adobe Reader 7, and I have been a regular user. I see that there is already a version 9.4.0.31 of Adobe Reader Lite.

    I am sorry that I cannot include actual links in this post. I guess I need a few more posts before I can do that.

    Below are search terms for google that will bring up the relevant web pages if you want to review them.

    XhmikosR's Page:
    google "site xhmikosr"

    XhmikosR's SourceForge Profile:
    google "sourceforge user xhmikosr"

    A Discussion of Transferring Maintenance of Adobe Reader Lite from Shark007 (original creator) to XhmikosR:
    google "adobe reader 9.1 corporate lite"

    It's still more "bloated" than FoxIt. But, if you find FoxIt does not render all your PDF's properly, you might consider it as an alternative.

    Disclaimer: I do not know Shark007 or XhmikosR. I have no personal interest in Adobe Reader Lite. I am only trying to give back in return for all that I have learned here.

    I use Foxit as well, but it's not as fast when viewing PDFs in-browser. Oh well, small price to pay.

    Instead of READER, let me share my own experience with Acrobat 9.4, Infix PDF editor and Foxit editor.

    Acrobat--bloatware, has a million features you don't need but doesn't have simple ones that is commonly needed. When i tried to edit some text it says i do not have the font. The same font is editable when using Infix. However, Infix gives me nasty clipping problems(text horizontally sliced) which is non-existent when using acrobat. Foxit....is extremely difficult to use and i'd consider it the worst among those 3. Also, acrobat's OCR can be useful if you have many scanned PDF docs.
