I downloaded Adobe Reader 8 this morning and without thinking, set it to open all PDFs by default. After playing around with it for a few hours, I think I like Preview better because its faster. I have looked through the preferences for each app but cannot find a way to set Preview back to being my default PDF viewer.

Any ideas?
