    FoxIt is no longer supported for Debian systems.

    is there a decent multi threaded PDF reader that can use all CPU cores. I need to search within files a lot. MuPDF doesn’t seem to be well maintained.

    Very helpful list! Thank you for this, it saved my college homework today!

    I needed a PDF app to sign and complete forms: LibreOffice’s viewer is the best so far (given you have a jpg image of your signature and don’t need a digital signature).

  5. David says:

    Add/verify digital signatures and many more is one of the most important features that lack this programs.
    I tried Foxit and wasn’t able to find the feature in the “free” version.

    Usually use Okular but didn’t want to pull in all these Qt4 dependencies so I’m trying out qpdfview. Very nice! Even the ability to add bookmarks and annotation (highlighting and notes). A bit less feature-complete than Okular, but way fewer dependencies, lean, and works great.

      @Mikkle

      Yap, dealing with a lot of dependencies can be so nagging at times, i actually use Okular as well but now i have to give Qpdfview some time and find its strong points comprehensively. Thanks for stopping by and for the wonderful feedback.
