Adobe Reader is the free viewing companion for Adobe applications that produce Adobe Portable Document Format (Adobe PDF) files. It will allow you to create, enhance, review, edit, and share information in Adobe PDF files.
You may not know what a PDF file is, but you've probably come across one at some point. PDF files are used by companies and even the IRS to distribute documentation and other pieces of information about their products, and Adobe Acrobat Reader is the essential interpreter.
Acrobat integrates directly with your Web browser, so if you come across a PDF document on the Web, you will be able to view it directly from within your Netscape or Internet Explorer browser window.
Acrobat also makes printing much more practical, by guaranteeing that the printout will look exactly like it does on your screen.
