Are you looking for multitab PDF viewer in Linux? Probably you want an alternative for Foxit Reader. Then use Qpdfview. It supports multitabbing. Also, it supports zooming, continuous view, fullscreen, properties viewing, sidebar, and so on. Fortunately, Qpdfview is available on Ubuntu official repository and many other distro repositories. Personally, I've used Qpdfview on my KDE as default PDF viewer because I always open many PDF files at once. I hope Qpdfview is useful for you too.

Install on Ubuntu

sudo apt-get install qpdfview
If you dislike to command, use Ubuntu Software Center instead.

Install on Another Linux Distro

If you don't use Ubuntu (Debian, Linux Mint, and their family), choose one of these methods.

1. Install on Fedora

sudo yum install qpdfview
sudo dnf install qpdfview
Use dnf if you are using Fedora 22 and above. Use yum if you are using Fedora before version 22.

2. Install on openSUSE

sudo zypper qpdfview

3. Install on Archlinux

Use this PKGBUILD from AUR. It is also applicable to Manjaro.

4. Install on Slackware

Use this SlackBuild from SBO.
