I need a utility that lets me browse a folder of PDFs, preview them (even one page of one document at a time), and then quickly delete the current one in view if I don't want it any longer. I've tried xPlorer2, but the preview window holds a handle to the PDF you're on and won't let you delete it.

In Preview on a Mac, simply hitting Command-Delete will do the trick. – Arjan Dec 29 '10 at 21:12
@Arjan Heck, you don't even need Preview--QuickLook and the Finder can do it all on their own. – NReilingh Dec 29 '10 at 21:26
Doh! I"m using this on a Windows PC – Caveatrob Dec 29 '10 at 21:40
