Have you tried acroread recently? Version 7 is much better than previous
version -- at least in that it actually, you know, works...
It still, incredibly, has the stupid 1980s style MDI interface though. But as
long as you're only working with one document at a time it's usable. Much
faster than navigating separate web pages. I don't use it for the Postgres
docs which are reasonable to navigate in HTML, but for something like the SQL
spec where I want to be able to search through hundreds of pages and jump
around repeatedly it's much faster.
