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.
