:: This is too cool, and needs to be mentioned. Via SearchEngineWatch via Anil Dash comes word of a utility created by programmer Joe Cox, called Adobe Reader SpeedUp:
Adobe Reader SpeedUp is a simple application that was created to help make the loading time of Adobe's Acrobat/Reader software bearable for everyday use. AR SpeedUp only needs to be used once (a process taking only a few seconds) and then your 'Reader will be transformed forever. There are also some tweaking options available. "w00t!", as the young kids say.
I downloaded and installed it in less than a minute, and now my .pdf files load in a few seconds, instead of the usual half-minute. Joe Cox
