    The well known company Adobe has today released Acrobat eight. This new Acrobat version claims to do more then just load with Windows and read whatever is encoded in PDF. It claims to have a faster load time, a sleek and modern user interface, the easy conversion of PDF to common file types, a new user chat interface, along with several other neat features. The user chat interface is designed for web conferences, and should allow for multi-platform firewalled and encrypted chats. Adobe promises that this Acrobat will be very easy to use, and has a lot of potential for its customers. It should be available in November 2006 for between $100 and $450, depending on if you are upgrading and the version you are buying.

    IDK, the new Adobe Reader would have to beat out the current Foxitreader to make me convert back.

    Adobe Reader sucks donkey dick, it has since version 5. Slow, retarded POS that hangs. You have to offload about half the plugins to get it to work right.



    No thanks.

    I hate it, every time I click a link that points to an pdf acrobat reader freezes my browser. happens with verson 6 and 7

    --EDIT--

    Just tried Foxitreader... so much better, no more freezing and loads so fast
