Sumatra PDF

What is Sumatra PDF?

Sumatra PDF is a free and open source PDF (portable document format) viewer, which also opens other file formats such as XPS, CBR, CBZ, and other similar file formats. It is very lightweight and fast, and is a serious contender for most computers who use the Adobe Acrobat Reader as their default PDF viewer. The Sumatra logo and design was, according to the programmer who first developed the application, an homage to Alan Moore’s acclaimed graphic novel Watchmen.

Sumatra’s design is very minimalistic, sacrificing design and aesthetic senses for utility and usefulness; this eschews the highly graphic “minimal” style of the recent versions of the Acrobat line. One of the more important features of Sumatra is its true “portable” status – it consists of only a single file without any external dependent files, which means it can be used in USB flash drives and toted around, coupled with its very small size compared to other PDF viewers. It does not need to be installed and can be used as soon as it’s downloaded. Users have also taken advantage of the Sumatra’s open source project and have contributed, so far, 69 translations of the project for different languages.
