Adobe Reader 9 – Still free but MUCH more valuable
Adobe Reader 9 is now available! You’ll want to grab this so you can take advantage of the very cool features that Acrobat 9 created PDFs contain (see my previous article) and to take advantage of the faster load time.
Steve Gottwals, Sr. Product Manager at Adobe details the new features here.
As I mentioned in my recent Acrobat article, I plan to post some PDFs soon to demonstrate the new possibilities of PDF. It will surely broaden your perspective on what PDFs can do.
On a related note, it is now possible to embed a PDF widget directly in your HTML page using a feature from Acrobat.com. This allows your users to view a PDF inline without having to wait on the PDF to download. Lori Defurio has a great example in her latest blog post.
The above image is NOT the embedded PDF because WordPress does not allow flash content on their hosted site… YET. Click the image to see the real thing on Lori’s blog.
