Jumping through Hoops with Acrobat

Posted by Jay | June 8, 2008 .

PDF files are used on hundreds of different sites, they’re something that you either love or hate! Adobe created the PDF format in 1993, so by computer standards it’s prehistoric! Adobe has recently launched a new version of their PDF reader software, this one is called Reader 9.

I’m not really a big fan of Acrobat Reader, I find that it slows down the whole experience. I personally use FoxIt reader because it’s much smaller and less bloated! It also allows you to annotate PDF files without having to spend a ridiculous amount of money.

Saying that however Acrobat Reader 9 does have some pretty new exciting features, it allows you to include SWF content inside your PDF files. This means that you can include Flex and Flash content into your PDF’s. This means that it’s even possible to include videos in your PDFs.

I don’t think it’s enough to convert me back to using Acrobat Reader, but you never know. Acrobat Reader 9 Download Link
