The free one. Regarding it, I've noticed something rather annoying:

- make sure Safari's default plugin for PDF files isn't Adobe Reader 
7's associated plugin "/Library/Internet 
Plug-Ins/AdobePDFViewer.plugin" (for example by opening Adobe Reader 
then unchecking, in the Internet pref panel, the corresponding item, 
then quitting Adobe Reader);

- open Adobe Reader 7;

- from it, open any PDF file;

- quit Adobe Reader 7.

Then you'll notice the Adobe Reader's plugin has been reset as Safari's 
default plugin for PDF files. Whether this is a bug or an intentional 
imperialistic behaviour, I don't know. I imagine this is a bug, because 
the corresponding item in the Internet preference panel only offers the 
choice "Adobe Reader 7.0.0" and does not see the other PDF visualizers 
or plugins.
