I found something new. You know the crushing experience of trying to load, and scroll through, and read, PDF files with the stutters and pauses of the standard Adobe PDF reader. Try this...

Foxit PDF reader ~> http://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf/rd_intro.php

The free version is a simple reader -- can't copy text for example -- but is so surprisingly fast on those normally slow PDF files. I now download and read all PDF files with this remarkably tiny and efficient tool. Pay version (or addons) has more advanced features, but the plain reader is all I need for tonnes of files that I can now easily reference.

I first discovered it on Peter Gutmann's site ~> http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~pgut001/ (http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/%7Epgut001/) ...who has some telling reads on the upcoming Microsoft Vista disaster.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
