Am looking for a PDF reader that can navigate PDF files like a web browser (IE, when I click a link that takes me to another part of the doc, I should be able to go back by pressing Ctrl+left arrow). I am using Debian.

Doesn't Adobe Reader already do that? – grawity May 7 '10 at 21:50
Am sure it does, but I should have specified that I was looking for FLOSS. – Tshepang May 11 '10 at 10:41

I really like Foxit reader.

In Foxit, use Alt+Left to go to previous "view" (as they call it), and Alt+Right for next one.

This is, however, not FLOSS — just freeware with a restrictive EULA and no source available (much like Adobe Reader). – Sergey Vlasov Dec 12 '10 at 18:28
