Sumatra PDF is a PDF viewer that is designed while keeping the elements of ease of use and speed in mind. It is designed to work to the point. There simply aren’t any fancy extras that do no good to the users. All it incorporates are the essentials required for viewing different kinds of PDFs and for organizing, searching and navigating through them. But there is one exceptional feature that makes it different and much better than any competing product in the market and that is its portability. Yes! You can put it in a flash drive and carry it around to use it any computer you want to without having to install it from the scratch.

As far as the user experience is concerned, Sumatra PDF is a pretty simple PDF viewer that helps a user get the job done in an effective and efficient manner. There is a tool bar that offers the basic functionalities of zooming in/out, printing, searching and skipping different pages back and forth. It also offers the facility of sending out an email with the PDF being viewed as an attachment without even having to leave the application.

One other notable feature is the home screen that appears whenever you try to open up a PDF file. Rather than taking you directly to it, Sumatra PDF offers a main page that displays a list of the most frequently opened files. This feature might come in very handy when you are looking on a project that requires you to take a look at different reference files from time to time.

Over the years, different PDF viewing software have managed to become bulky and loaded in order to prove their superiority but if you are looking for a plain and simple tool to have a look at your PDFs and perform the basic functions around it, you’ve got it in the form of Sumatra PDF. It is lightweight and thus pretty quick and efficient.

One little thing that appears to be a little annoying is the fact that you can’t do a lot about changing the appearance of the PDF viewer. If you try to change the ‘Advanced Settings’, it takes you to an HTML file that you are apparently supposed to edit in order to make the required changes. Other than that, if you are looking for a simple PDF viewer to get the job done, Sumatra PDF is a catch.
