Google Chrome 8 Built-in PDF Viewer

No comments

With its latest stable release, version 8.0.552.215, Google Chrome finally has a native PDF Viewer. No longer will the browser need to use Adobe’s own Reader PDF Plugin for internet browsers. It is actually automatically disabled upon updating to this latest Chrome version.

Lightweight and Fast

Chrome PDF Viewer takes away most functions that it is pretty much a barebones viewer. Only four buttons – used for zooming – are present side by side at the lower right portion. Practically they are useless since you can zoom and scroll up/down quicker using your mouse scroll wheel and the Ctrl key.
