9.18. Preview

Preview began life as Mac OS X's built-in graphics viewer—but in Panther, it's much more than that. It's now the program you use to view incoming faxes ( Chapter 13), as well as a nearly full-blown clone of Acrobat Reader (the free Adobe program that you use to read PDF files).

In fact, because Preview now includes searching PDF documents, copying text out of them, and clicking live hyperlinks in them—features that used to be available only in Acrobat Reader—Apple doesn't even include Acrobat Reader with Mac OS X. Preview, the company feels, is ready to take over all PDF-reading tasks. (Among other benefits, Preview is a lot faster than Acrobat Reader.)
