Yep, it's a good program. Been using it for years instead of Acrobat.

I used Foxit for over a year. I liked it cause it's light and fast.

But just recently, I found that functionality wise, it's not as great as Adobe Reader. I was having a hard time copy/pasting some texts in table/multiple columns so I switched back to the latest Adobe Reader. The newer Adobe Reader version seems pretty fast too, not as bad as the older versions.
