eWeek's view on Adobe Reader clones......

So, recently, a nice chap over at eWeek called Larry Seltzer published a comparison between Adobe Reader 9 and some PDF viewer alternatives.

Take a look for yourself here

This came as a plesant surprise since it comes after he had previously suggested that companies should consider removing Adobe Reader due to the recent security vulnerabilities.

“After testing was completed, I'm not so anxious to dump Adobe, as all of the programs tested provided reason for concern. Perhaps responsibly managing the vulnerabilities in Adobe products is the best solution.”

In the article, Larry Seltzer could have expanded the range and type of PDF documents he used, and doesn’t discuss printing results much, if at all, but I still congratulate him for keeping an open mind.

I have researched alternative PDF readers because typically I receive PDFs instead of printed documents and only need to read the document and nothing more. Reader has a fair amount of overhead if you don't have form based documents or documents with any kind of interactivity and just want a simple reader.
