mupdf - very fast (although for some reason it
seems to be slower than it used to be, and it exhibits some really bad
screen tearing on some PDFs), with good key bindings, no unicode support

evince - more featureful and more modern and GUIish, includes native
printing support (useful for when you want to print a page range subset
of the PDF), good support for unicode

zathura (with zathura-pdf-poppler) - very fast, and vi-ish
