Ok, I guess I've been living under a rock or something to not have heard about THE replacement for Adobe Acrobat Reader - Foxit's Reader. Acrobat is huge to download, slow to start up, and now has all of these extras they want you to install.
Come on, all I want is to read and search a PDF. And according to Hansleman and their website you can now type on any document. Sweet action!
“Other than not crashing, the other fantastic feature is the ability to type on any document. That means I can fill out forms that weren't set up as PDF Forms. That alone is reason to switch.”
