zathura or evince? #lazyweb

I've been using zathura for a while, but it doesn't redraw on a window resize, which is kind of a pain.


@GeoffWozniak Evince is certainly more feature-complete, I'd say. It has much better support for annotations, and a much better copy/paste UI.

Zathura doesn't have as many dependencies, feels snappier, and has pluggable rendering backends, which may be relevant if you're low on resources.

I use Evince for my day-to-day stuff.

@nikola There's an "evince-lite" package in FreeBSD that gets rid of all the GNOME stuff and seems to do everything quite well. Speed seems pretty good so far, too.
