Though Adobe Reader has come a long way in the past couple versions, there are other good options available for displaying PDF files. For Windows users, Perfect PDF Reader may be an enticing alternative.

Apart from the obvious addition of a ribbon interface, Perfect PDF adds a number of useful features. There are three views to choose from – standard, reading view, and a full-screen reading. Perfect PDF also makes it easy to extract images and text from files. Either type of element can be selected, copied, and pasted elsewhere, and you can also save the entire file as text export it to a variety of image formats. As with FoxIt PDF, Perfect PDF can also edit form fields and save your input in the document.

There are areas of the interface that look unfinished, or at least a little plain – like the save as images dialog. While it doesn’t hinder any functionality, it doesn’t fit in with the more up-to-date look of the ribbon.

Perfect PDF Reader is a free download and runs on both 32- and 64-bit Windows platforms. The Visual C++ 2008 runtimes are required, and can be downloaded during installation if you need them.
