Slim free PDF Reader as alternative to Adobe Reader


hi

I'm looking for alternative to Adobe Acrobat Reader, a slim free PDF Reader with browser plugin, for example for Iceweasel.

Other than acroread... none.
Well, the problem is the plugin, not the reader.

You can use the plugin "pdf download", where you can specify the reader you want to use.


Kind regards

You can use mozplugger to embed any reader you want. I use xpdf.

Either use the PDF Download extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/636/
or mozplugger.

I use Evince as PDF reader. And I recommend it.
But, as mentioned above, no native FF plugin.
