I'm quite surprised by this statement. Although speed measurement is a relative thing, I always thought Sumatra being faster than Adobe and even Foxit, especially since v5. It seems to be on par with STDU Viewer, but the latter have rendering problems. From the feature point of view, the only big missing functionality is the support for forms, but some "readonly" functionality was added in v1.8.EmuandCo wrote:Size is Not everything. Sumatrapdf is slow as he'll and full of missing functionality. We need features as #1 and size is secondary imo
Older versions are smaller because they were compressed by UPX or MPRESS, but it created problems with antiviruses which tended to flag Sumatra as "suspicious". So to avoid having the forum flooded with complains about Sumatra being a virus with each new release, the authors decided to forgo the compression.frmariam wrote: SumatraPDF (old versions are a lot smaller)
