Stop Printing. Start Skimming
Skim is a PDF reader and note-taker for OS X. It is designed to help you read and annotate scientific papers in PDF, but is a great application to read and view any PDF file.
Skim is free and open-source. It is under active development by a small group of volunteer contributors and more are always welcome.

About the Wiki
A SourceForge.net user account is required to edit pages, and you need sufficient permissions with the Wiki. This is necessary to avoid regrettable wiki spam, and because SourceForge does not give us the option to let everybody edit. Email an administrator (e.g. Christiaan) noting your SourceForge user name. You will get edit permissions as long as you're not a robot, you may even get them if you are a friendly robot.
