Smaller file size (zip is 2.5MB, but it's 5.5 MB after
expansion/installation) is at the expense of functionality.
FoxIt Reader does not handle many PDF features, including: page labels,
highlights, bookmark properties and some actions, some form-related
layers, 3D models.
No message is displayed when unsupported features are present in the PDF
being displayed, so you don't necessarily know what is being handled
improperly or ignored altogether.
