xpdf has more than its share of imperfections (in rendering quality, performance, and user interface), but I don't see how you could give up find and copy for everyday use. I mean, this is digital information! That's why I download PDF in preference to PostScript, even though the PostScript version (in gv) is typically better in every other way. Oh, and xpdf has some handy keyboard shortcuts, including vi motion keys!

Speaking of find, Google can search PostScript; why can't we?
