pdf viewer with tab feature

i've been using foxit reader on Windows for quite sometime and loving it - especially it's tab feature (like firefox and opera browsers)

now in Linux i have the default pdf viewer of Fedora 10 and i also tried Foxit for Linux which doesn't have the tab feature (i don't know why)

can anyone recommend me any other pdf viewer that has tab feature so i can open multiple pdf files on one PDF viewer window?

I think you can manage to do this in konqueror. konqueror has an inbuilt pdf viewer and also a tabbed interface.

Yep, do a right-click on the pdf in konqueror and make it opening into a new tab. Gives the same functionality, if only tabbed multi pdf viewing is required.
