The Adobe Acrobat Home Page contains detailed information on this product, and allows you to download free copies of Acrobat for Windows, Macintosh, or UNIX systems.
We suggest that you configure your Adobe Acrobat Reader as a plug-in application for your World Wide Web browser. This can be accomplished with Adobe Acrobat Reader version 3.0 or higher, and Netscape (2.0 or higher), Internet Explorer (3.0 or higher), or compatible browsers. This allows the reader software to integrate closely with the browser and allows you to begin to read the PDF file while it is downloading. Version 3.0 or higher of the Adobe Acrobat reader also permits reading of PDF pages side-by-side.
If you have an Internet browser installed on your system at the time that you install Adobe Acrobat, it should automatically install itself as a helper application in the browser. You will know that it is properly installed as a helper application if you can view the PDF file in the browser window, with a single row of special Acrobat buttons along the top of the viewing screen.
