Foxit Reader is a popular free (but proprietary) a PDF viewer available for Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. In comparison with the version for Windows Foxit PDF Reader Linux version loses some features – the most noticeable is the inability to create PDF files – but the app still has some quite useful features.
The latest version (at the time of this writing) Foxit Reader for Linux has received a new user interface and new features such as annotations, different types of document view, bookmark, print documents and annotations (you can print the document itself, the document with annotations or just annotations), and more. Became available several tools for the annotation – highlighting text, underline, strikethrough, replace, or insert text, add a note or drawing with a pencil (and the eraser to remove notes).
As for review, here you can choose various icons, for example, a dot or a star – this is useful for adding notes to yourself or to collaborate on documents. I should also mention that when I tested this app, it could open a large PDF file (containing many images) very quickly and allowed to quickly flip through it without any delays, so Foxit Reader is gorgeous, when it comes to performance.
