    Err, DjVu isn’t a new format from Adobe, it’s been around since the 90’s and is created by some guys at AT&T. Adobe isn’t involved in this format in any way. Moreover, Abobe Reader isn’t capable of opening DjVu files, you’ll need a special viewer/browser plugin for the format.

    • Hey sorry for the typo. I got confused between Adobe and AT&T, that’s why I wrote the name by mistake. And yes it is not a new format, but most people don’t know about it yet.

    DJVU files are much quicker to open and browse through than PDFs but unfortunately they are significantly larger.

    • In my experience, DjVu files are significantly smaller than PDF files.

      Here’s a conversion I did that is one tenth the size. You can save a bunch of disk space that way!
