well AFAIR evince is quite good at displaying PDFs, it has a less
awkward UI and it is poppler-based, so you may want to have a look
Also, Okular is Qt-based
see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poppler_(software)#PDF_readers_using_Poppler

They both can have page facing, and continuous page scrolling; also
I'd rather have mouse mode (hand vs. zoom tool) in the right-click
menu; also, I'd expect the zoom tool to actually zoom the page instead
of acting as a magnifying glass

just my impressions, though
