Adobe Reader 9 is actually not too bad. It's ahead of Preview.app and Evince, and nearly as good as kpdf, beating it in page rendering and text selection (kpdf's text selection is xpdf-level atrocious with a popup menu on top.) The things lacking in the Adobe Reader would be that the page thumbnails are ugly (WWID: render at 2x size, bilinear downscale) and the search is substandard (WWID: strip out all the crap, simplify, show results as you type, show a good-sized result snippet with the page number and the page thumb.)
But yeah, fast page rendering, good text selection, decent basic navigation.
