Does downloading these PDFs take too long?

PDF is a really useful file format created by Adobe. You probably know that you need to have software installed on your computer to open these files. Adobe’s default PDF reader is free and has become kind of a standard for viewing PDF files. Unfortunately the Adobe PDF reader is a huge program that takes forever and a day to load. In other words, it’s not the downloading of PDF files that takes so long, it’s the opening of the default reader software. If that bothers you, there is an alternative free reader that you can download from Foxit. It is a very lean program and loads in virtually no time. Make sure to also get the associated plugin for your browser, which will hopefully be Firefox, since it is the best browser currently available and free!
