In most cases it takes FOREVER to open a PDF file. The Adobe reader just keeps saying Initializing this, Initializing that, Loading API this, and that ARGH.

I hate them for that reason too. All Adobe programs I've used are like that. It's so frustrating.

Im just noticing alot of web sites are using these now.
I dont seem to have problem loading them but it hard as crap finding information im looking for because they use table contents of the book and it doesnt match pdf page for instance it may say page 4 but in pdf it like page 23.

That's a problem with Adobe's Acrobat reader, not PDF files per se. Some PDF readers are a lot faster.
