Dump Adobe Reader

I don't know about anyone else, but I find Adobe's Acrobat Reader to be a piece of bloated crap. I mean, the thing, installed, is like 40 Mb! And for what, so you can READ a PDF file.

I downloaded an application called Foxit PDF Reader. The program takes up, unzip, 1.7 Mb or so. That's it. One exe file, and two tiny dlls (and a couple of small text files). The thing opens even the largest PDF file in seconds and takes no time to load up.

Just uninstall Adobe and load it. I have yet to find a problem with it. Enjoy.

Oh yeah...the Liberals suck and should be charged with countless crimes. Turf 'em next election. Please.
