"GNOME users are probably well familiarized with this document viewer. Every time you click a PDF you downloaded from the web, it will start up and, in an instant, render the document for you to view.

"Among the document file formats that Evince supports out of the box you will find PDF, by using the Poppler library, Postscript (.ps) files, TIFF images, TeX output in the form of DVIs and even DjVu compressed files. Throw in a few more libraries, and you will be able to open Impress documents, comics in the CBR, CBZ and CB7 compressed formats and even images, although we can't recommend it as a primary image viewer and it might be unstable. In the future Powerpoint rendering may be added, and even support for some other formats."
