Praise to iSilo--CIA World Fact Book--iSilo beats the competition!
Happened to fetch the 2007 version of the CIA World Fact Book. Decided to get it in two flavors this time, especially as I noticed an iSilo version.
So, ereader vs. iSilo on CIA? iSilo wins by a mile! The opening and moving around are nearly instantaneous whereas with ereader one waits, and waits... and, yes, you got it--WAITS! Finally a page will open.
I think a few years back I had an Adobe Reader version, which was also sluggish-- but did have the ability to magnify the maps.
I've also used iSilo to create Palm versions of large web sites--e.g., astronomical sites about the Messier objects-- and it works like a charm. You can set up navigation bookmarks and the jumping from here to there is immediate.
So, given that we're often posting questions or complaints or suggestions (me included!), I thought it was time to simply offer some praise, pure and unadulterated, praise! Way to go, iSilo!

Conversely, I think that eReader's autoscroll operates in a much smoother, more unobtrusive fashion than iSilo's. I also think it's much easier to bookmark (and unbookmark) pages in eReader. Both of these attributes seem more important for literature than for references...
