Software: Foxit PDF Reader
Adobe's PDF Reader, acroread 7.0, started scanning PDF documents for the reading order before displaying the document's content. I couldn't figure out how to turn off that feature, so I ditched it and installed FoxIt Software's PDF Reader. It's small compared to acroread (the installer is only 1.1 Mbytes vs 20.8 Mbytes) and starts in a flash. Way to go!
