This is a pretty good reader except for one awful "feature": It supports DRM of "protected" PDF files, and the author stubbornly refuses to make it optional. So you can't print PDFs for offline reading, and you can't copy text to the clipboard for pasting into Google translate, saving to your notes, quoting in a paper, etc. Open-source software with DRM is really hypocritical. Restricting users' freedom does not benefit anyone and is contrary to the purpose of the GPL. See defectivebydesign.org for more about how DRM harms society.
Definitely a 'must have' for those who are fed up with Adobe (hard to find someone who isn't). Quick, clean and capable. Only enhancement we'd like to see is a 'single window/instance only' mode. Thanks.
I like it for it starts fast and has low system requirements.
excellent tiny programme that gives all those bloated freewares a thumbdown.Very useful project!
Realy fast and great PDF programm. Keep up the good work!
