Thank you, Adobe Reader 9 – NOT!

Posted by comartslibrarian on July 5, 2008

READ: Thank you, Adobe Reader 9

For starters, version 8 was a 22 MB download. Version 9 is a mere 33 MB…

A 33MB download just to view PDF files? No thanks! Even before version 9, Acrobat Reader was developing a reputation as bloatware, like Windows Vista and Norton Internet Security Suite.

Want a zippy little PDF reader that’s free? Try FoxIt Reader!
