Evince

Evince

Evince is a document viewer for multiple document formats. It currently supports PDF, Postscript, DjVu, TIFF and DVI formats. The goal of Evince is to replace the multiple document viewers that exist in the GNOME Desktop with a single easy to use application.

The software shares much of the functionality offered by Adobe Reader with the exception of bookmarking, PDF files with Javascript animation, and PDF Browser plugins.

Evince has a similar feature set to Adobe Reader. It is not as quick as Adobe Reader at rendering complex PDF documents. Neither does Evince currently have any browser plugin functionality.
