It is commercial, right?  And Windows/MacOS only, right? If you allow
commercial solutions and just those platforms, Acrobat is the de facto

`Fast web view' used to be known as `optimized' or `linearized' PDF.  
Recent versions of ghostscript (>= 6.20) can linearize PDF, and I am happy 
for this to be a separate processing step.
