Big Changes for Next Version of Adobe Reader

Quote:
Adobe Systems Inc. today announced that it will harden the next version of its popular Reader PDF viewer, a frequent target of attacks, by adding "sandboxing" technology to the software. Sandboxing, perhaps best known for its use in Google Inc.'s Chrome browser, isolates processes from one another and the rest of the machine, preventing or hindering malicious code from escaping an application to wreak havoc or infect the computer.

It was only a matter of time. In this day of increasingly sophisticated attacks and also multithreaded processors that better handle computations.

Sounds good, but I feel Adobe Reader is too bloated these days.

I use the excellent & free Nitro PDF Reader which is currently still in beta but works great.

Being a huge advocate of 64-bit software, I went for PDF-XChange Viewer. Sorry Adobe, but I won't be going back to Adobe Reader anytime soon.
