So I guess it doesn’t need saying, but Adobe Reader on Windows absolutely sucks. It is slow, regularly crashes web browsers and it used to make me think twice about even opening PDF files unless I really needed to see what was inside.
I was not expecting a different experience on Mac, it is not Microsoft’s fault that Adobe wrote a reader app that sucks so hard and so I expected it to suck just as hard over on this side of the fence as well so I was extremely pleasantly surprised to find a little app called Preview installed on my new mac as the default PDF viewer.
I have no idea if Adobe even make a PDF reader for Mac OS but there is no way I am going anywhere near the Acrobat Reader site just in case they do :) This thing is tiny, responsive and just worksâ„˘, it’s great.
Chalk up one for the Mac side of the fence, the grass is getting greener.
