For those downloading this reader:

Unfortunately, the installation package installs the Tracker Ask browser toolbar by default. Users should use care in the installation process and most will opt out of the default to avoid including this annoying additional software.

For those interested in comparisons, as I was:

That hasn't been my experience today. I installed the new version (downloaded from the website). No Tracker Ask browser toolbar installed or offered. YMMV. Thanks for the link...I may give Nitro a try for a change.

Nitro conveniently installs a print-to-PDF driver, but overall I found it slower and not as intuitive as PDF XChange. I used Nitro for about a month before going back.

I also tried Nitro a couple of months ago but didn't really like it. I still prefer PDF-XChange Viewer.
