Tired of waiting around for Adobe Acrobat to open up? Acrobat 7.0 is a definite improvement over the 6.0 that was released in a rush, but Acrobat is still a pain when you have 10 other windows open.
I recently discovered the Foxit PDF Reader (download.com
) from Foxit Software
Itís simple but super fast, and does its job with minimum fuss. It wonít open inside browsers, future versions may come with a plugin that enables that feature.
If you need multilingual support (Japanese, Chinese, etc) then you need to download an additionlal *.bin files. An occasional font here and there may look somewhat less pretty in Foxit, but thatís a minor price to pay for sheer speed of opening PDF files.
