The application Goodreader on my iPad has a feature called "crop tool", which comes very handy for reading scientific papers. The following page seems to describe the feature quite well:

I would like to use a similar feature on my desktop PC running Windows 7. Unfortunately, I haven't found a free and slim PDF viewer yet that offers this feature in a similar, intuitive way.

Note: I don't want to change the PDF document. I only want to crop the margins to make best use of my small display.

Is there a free and slim PDF viewer for Windows 7 that includes such a "crop feature"? Which PDF viewer on Windows 7 do you prefer for reading scientific papers?

Okular. It's not Windows native though, so you'll have to install the KDE :( But the nice thing is that it doesn't crop the file, it only trims the margins in the view.
