Windows 7: Good PDF Reader?

Good PDF Reader?

I'm looking for a new PDF reader. I like SumatraPDF's favorites system and the way the navigation pane opens when there are in-document hyperlinks. However, it has a problem where it won't load the whole the document into memory at one time, making me have to wait for the page to render each time I go to a new one. That's really annoying.

I have an old version of Adobe reader for the odd time I need to edit a PDF, so I only need a small simple reader like Sumatra that actually loads whole documents and has an in-document favorites option. Preferably it would have a traditional interface with a menubar. Thanks for the help.

Yeah, I saw that, but it has none of my requirements. It's a huge Adobe Reader replacement, and I might as well use Adobe instead of going with it. It does have an in-document favorite system, but the benefit is ruined by its ribbon-based UI. I know you were trying to help, but it would help more if you would read entire posts before commenting. Thanks.

I've never really noticed any delays of loading pages any more than any pdf reader
But I suppose it depends on how many images are in the pdf
Which I rarely ever deal with pdf's so sumatra is good for me :)

Thank you Margrave; just what I wanted! It has a better bookmarks feature than Sumatra, great, highly customizable UI, and loads up as fast as Sumatra while loading the whole document, even when it has a lot of pictures. Kudos!

The only thing I dislike about it is the useless tab showing you which document you have open. Any way to get rid of it?
