  • Adobe Reader is the best, but it's so resource heavy. It takes almost 10% of my 8GB ram.
  • Evince has trouble with highlighting text and does not support tabs.
  • Foxit Reader for Linux does not support tabs.

Any assistance in choosing an appropriate PDF viewer that supports these features on Linux and isn't too resource intensive?

For reference, I'm using Ubuntu 10.04, but this is a generic Linux question – Mahmoud Abdelkader Jul 20 '10 at 23:59

If you have the KDE libraries installed, I suppose you could use Konqueror - it's really intended as a web browser, but it has tabs, and it can display PDFs using the Okular KPart.

Clever, slightly out of the box solution. Nice. – DaveParillo Jul 21 '10 at 0:57
Thanks ;-) but it's not so clever really, I'm actually just used to doing that myself. I haven't quite gotten out of the mindset of KDE 3, when Dolphin didn't exist and Konqueror served as the web browser, file manager, and generic viewer application all in one. – David Z Jul 22 '10 at 1:37
