Viewing PDF file using Chrome causes headache to many people. But finally, Google came up with its very own PDF viewer. It is still in beta so first thing first, switch first to beta.

For the fans and supporters who are way too loyal with Google Chrome, viewing PDF files in the browser is such a pain in the ass. Good thing Google is rolling out a better way to view PDFs on Chrome. Chrome’s built in PDF reader will be available in beta versions only. If you are using the non-beta Chrome then download the beta to get this update.

“To open a PDF document, you’d typically need to install additional software or browser plug-in in order to view it in a web browser. With the integrated Chrome PDF viewer now available in Chrome’s beta, you can open a PDF document in Chrome without installing additional software. The PDF document will load as quickly and seamlessly as a normal web page in the browser,” said Googler John Abd-El-Malek on Google Chrome blog.

Good job for Google for creating such innovation. This does not mean kicking Adobe on the shins but simply finding faster way to manipulate PDFs.
