I have tested this programm and found out that it significantly reduces the usual loading time of Acrobat Reader when opening a PDF document. It can be used for Acrobat Reader versions 3.0 - 6.0.1.
You can check it yourself, it's freeware.

Nice Feb 4, 2004

but....
There are some things you can do in Reader itself to speed up loading, namely:

Get rid of the splash screen: Edit > Preferences > Startup > Display splash screen

Change settings in Edit > Preferences > Internet:

uncheck 'Display PDF in browser' and 'Check browser settings'. check 'allow fast web view'.

These work for me and have visibly, if not dramatically increased PDF loading times.

cheers,
Pawel Skalinski


OOOOPPSS! DECREASED loading times!!!

Before this programm, I used to get impatient while AR was loading all the plug-ins. Now I notice that I don't have to wait any more.

I have manually removed plugins that I don't need Feb 4, 2004

This has helped a lot.

Another thing that has helped, I don't know why, is opening an empty Reader window first and then clicking on the file.
