    Any of ya'll upgraded to reader 8 yet? Pros, cons, likes, dislikes?
    Any problems? How did it react to the japanese sites? I'm looking
    to possibly upgrade, but would like to hear your opinions.

    Take care

    i upgraded to 8 when i upgraded to IE7(no problems) and first time i went to a japanese or asian site, and tried to open a pdf there, it downloaded the font pack without issues

    i do find the interface to be confusing, some of the buttons you normally have in a tabbed menu is now parked on the far left side of the window

    did noticed there is a need to turn on those functions like the hand icon to pan around a zoomed in page.

    kinda stupid, when all of that was right there in 7 and previous versions

    It is also a resourse HOG! :mad: I use Foxit (free version), if I do have to alter files, colors, etc i use Adobe or Photoshop.

    Adobe Reader Upgrade

    Well, Ray,

    As I am a Mac user, it seems the Adobe Reader 8.0 has only been released for Windows thus far.
    But I do have the latest version for Mac, 7.0.9.

    Bengt :D
