Macromedia FlashPaper Lighter Alternative to Acrobat?

Dave McClure:

"Every time i load up Acrobat Reader to view a PDF file, i might as well go get a cup of coffee — it’s a complete dog, and not at all appropriate for viewing lightweight docs over the web. Then along comes Macromedia FlashPaper, and I’m amazed this product hasn’t already obliterated the portable document market."

Interesting. I second Dave’s comment on Acrobat’s sluggishness, this is really aggravating. FlashPaper has an API and isn’t even new.
