Dump Adobe Reader

It’s widely and universally known that Adobe (aka Acrobat) Reader is about the slowest loading piece of software… ever. Glacial at times.

There’s a few things you can do about this:

Never view a PDF again
Hack the Adobe Reader plug-ins directory and remove the plugins you rarely or never use – but be careful or you may end up with an error message on every load (this happened to me)
Get Foxit PDF Reader (it’s free!)
