    Anyone using acrobat reader V7?

    http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readermain.html

    Anyone using the integrated yahoo toolbar that optionally comes with
    it? If so, does it have any undesirable side-effects like spyware
    related problems? Can the yahoo toolbar be uninstalled?

    Anyone using the alternative reader?

    Anyone noticed how poor the search capability is in Acrobat reader?
    My opinion is that Adobe have deliberately kept the search
    functionality to a minimum in the past with the aim of selling more
    copies of Acrobat Professional which allows pdf creators to embed
    better search capability in their documents. That's the problem with
    monopolies. Unfortunately most people seem to think Adobe are kind
    and generous for giving away Acrobat reader for free.

    Do you trust Adobe? Do you trust Yahoo?

    Do you want to use V7 or wait and see what maybe hidden by the dust?
