    PDF-XChange Viewer is my prefer program to read/edit pdf-files. Anyway, for me, PDF-XChange Viewer is the best non-Adobe option around at the moment, and even the full-blown version is pretty cheap compared to the others. PDF-XChange Viewer is faster and has intelligible interface and has many features to work with pdf-files, such as page thumbnails, stamp tool, sticky tool, adding comments, multilanguage support. Edit Bookmark (in the new version), support for XFA PDF form files are Free (which neither Foxit nor Sumatra does). And I would like to say many thanks for its excellent and fast support.
