It will install a plugin & framework into Safari (right into the  
application), but I think they improved their attitude, and are  
behaving themselves now (but wait for confirmation). If you never run  
the reader as an admin user, you can prevent a lot of trouble, but be  
sure to disable the pdf plugin.

There is my presenter tool, but I don't use it myself (now _that's_  
an endorsement!). Hyperlinks will not work.

Doesn't "Slideshow" in Preview help you?
