I have written many, many times in these pages how much I hate PDF files. It's not just me. This article from usability expert Jakob Nielsen condemns PDFs for committing numerous "usability crimes." They are long and linear. They crash the computer (especially Adobe's new Acrobat Reader). They have an odd interface. They disrupt navigation. They don't scroll properly. And they take too long to download. "PDF is the monster from the Black Lagoon. It puts its clammy hands all over people with a cruel grip that doesn't let go."
