I just installed the latest Adobe Reader update, taking my MacBook up to v9.3.1. With the language pack, it weighs in at 216.8MB. Is it just me, or does that seem like a large chunk of space for a PDF viewer? I'd ditch it completely, but I run into those websites quite often that demand that you use Adobe to read a PDF. Is there anyway around these web sites' demands of using Adobe, short of downloading every PDF file I wish to read and then opening in Preview? I prefer Preview, but would appreciate not having to download every IBM Redbook I need to scan for a few commands or code snippets.
