Default Fastest PDF reader?

Looking for a PDF document reader. It has to be fast: It opens fast. It scrolls fast. It turns pages fast. It refreshes fast.

Also, it should strictly be a reader. I don't want to edit PDF documents. I don't want to watch multimedia in PDF. In fact, I don't want it to have any editing or multimedia functions, which only make the app slow and bloated with features/UI icons that I don't need or use.

Again, it has to be lightning fast. I store professional references and resources on my mobile SD card, and I often check them for information. That's why I need the app to be fast. When I need to check some information or numbers at work, I just need to open up the documents, scroll through the pages to find the information I need ASAP, and then get back to my work ASAP. I hate waiting for the PDF documents to open, load and refresh when I'm in a hurry.

P.S. I already have ezPDF reader. It's absolutely a piece of shit, slow and bloated with excessive editing and multimedia features, and takes forever to open, load and refresh documents. So do not recommend anything like that.

In my experience EbookDroid had impressed me the most. Some magazines with bitmaps, vectors and text render faster than my desktop. Has it's quirks though but then again Adobe's app also has its fair share. Hopefully they add tabbed items soon as I end up using 3-4 different and lesser PDF apps to switch between pdfs I need opened concurrently.
