The PDF format is a document that was created using the Adobe Acrobat software package. First of all, you can use the PDF file in the printing industry and in the creation of scientific documents. Some people also call it a student format, because this is an extension of a huge number of books.

The history of PDF format is quite simple and ordinary. It was necessary to develop a format of electronic documents for the printing industry. The solution was found by a firm called Adobe Systems. In order to provide printed products - books, magazines, brochures in electronic form, a new file type called Portable Document Format was patented. In December 2008, the developers decided that their invention should be distributed openly and this type of file became an open standard.

Adobe Acrobat Reader was developed by the same software company that invented PDF file. Free version of the software copes perfectly well, this is one of the best programs for working with this PDF format. Alternatively, there is another utility that works with our “ward”. It is called Foxit Reader, some call it PDF Reader. Enough quality utility that is perfect as a backup option, and for some, as the main one. The third utility of our review is STDU Viewer. This utility works not only with PDF files, but also with a number of similar “book” extensions. Its advantage is ability work quickly even on weak computers.
