    "CNET comment "You might as well install this now...""

    September 28, 2012  |   By swamprat

    Pros

    It is a Reader

    Cons

    no redeeming value yet noted. The only reason to leave v9 is to stop the constant upgrade pop-ups. Once again add junk just for the sake of adding and remove or hide any useful tools trying to force a overpriced product upgrade. one more reason to migrate to ODF over PDF.

    Summary

    Judging from the dates on above reviews CNET 2008 review is a bit dated. The "dockable" tool bar is an absolute irritating idiotic annoyance! Just one more unnecessary click! It should have remained along the top line along with a useful set of tools now hidden or gone. If some clown at Adobe thinks these changes will enamor users to migrate they need a new job. Another, any other reader will be an improvement. This comment earns X a 5 star rating??? "You might as well install this now before a Web site you visit prompts you to download it, because you'll need it."
