Nitro PDF is useful in combination with Sumatra PDF etc

Sumatra PDF is hands-down the fastest and best PDF reader that is only used for reading, and nothing else. I use it in the PortableApps suite. For creating and editing PDF files, especially the quick and easy way by "printing to PDF", Nitro PDF is a good replacement for PDF Creator, which used to be popular, but has had a lot of controversy due to unethical malware bundled with it. For everything Sumatra PDF can't do, Nitro PDF has worked well for me. I also use PDFescape.com for adding signatures and other little edits.

This application seems overly heavy and sluggish. The installation takes a long time, it validates itself and such (I prefer installers that just install) and I got the feeling it installs After installation I noticed it had associated the files it reads to itself (so PDFs will by default open in Nitro).

When using Nitro PDF to browse pages in a PDF, I experienced a delay of about 1 second. The same document reads without any delay in both Adobe Reader, Acrobat and Sumatra PDF.
