    I want to use Preview I really do. But I can't I'll tell you why. With Adobe Reader it AUTOMATICALLY centers and zooms in the pdf document I'm looking at. Preview does not unfortunately unless I'm wrong. Hopefully I am. I just like that about Adobe Reader 8.1. With Preview I have to manually do these things. Also is Firefox for the mac cocoa based? Is that the only real difference on firefox with camino. I prefer Camino by the way. Does Firefox slow down over time whereas Camino does not?? Thank you

    Firefox is not a Cocoa app. It will get native OS X widgets in FF3, but for now it's not. Camino, however, IS a Cocoa app.

    I suppose it's possible for either to slow down, but I tend to think of Firefox as being slower from the get-go...could just be me, though.

    If you don't care for Preview, but want something snappier than Acrobat Reader you can try out PDFView. It's free too.

    There are a lot of alternatives to Preview out there.
