LittlePDF is a free PDF reader and editor that includes a number of features. Some of these features include the ability to convert, edit, read and save the changes made to a PDF file. Another unique feature is the ability to convert a Word document to PDF format.

PDF Hammer is a free reader and editor that does not require a software download to utilise. PDF files that the user would like to edit are uploaded and edited online, then saved to the hard drive when finished. Aside from reading and editing, PDF Hammer also allows for password security to protect documentation, amongst a myriad of other features.


PDFescape is a free online reader and editor that also doubles as a PDF form filler and designer. It features the ability to open and edit PDF documents, add forms if needed, read and save changes that are made. A unique feature to PDFescape is that no download is necessary as it is a free online application.
