Linearization (sometimes called Fast Web View by Adobe) restructures a PDF document for page-at-a-time downloading (byte-serving) from web servers.

A linearized (or a Fast Web View optimized) PDF file is a file that has been organized in a special way to enable efficient incremental access in a network environment. The file is valid PDF in all respects, and is compatible with all existing viewers and other PDF applications. Enhanced viewer applications can recognize that a PDF file has been linearized and can take advantage of that organization (as well as added hint information) to enhance viewing performance. This is especially important with large documents that can take a long time to download from a server.
