Tabs are nice, but let's hope that the devs can keep the feature creep below some subjective level of bloat.

I was actually thinking the same. I've been using SumatraPDF for a long time now, and seeing new features like this scare me a little.

Foxit was decent too until they included all sorts of useless (for me at least) features.

At least Sumatra is FOSS and anyone can fork it if it takes the bloatware route too.
