Viewers in web browsers have traditionally had limited functionality, only allowing you to view or download PDF files. To perform more complex tasks, until recently, it was necessary to have independent applications, at least – the level of Adobe Acrobat Reader. Finally, Adobe has released an integrated mini editor for browsers.
Company published the extension for Chrome and Edge browsers, allowing users to fill out forms, sign a document, leave comments on it, quickly switch to viewing the document in Acrobat Reader DC on a computer, and use some other services.
Once the extension is downloaded, it will need to be selected as the default PDF viewer. In order to use the additional functionality, you must log in with an Adobe, Google or Apple account (in the latter two cases, you will still need to specify your country and age).
As a result, the user gets a rather convenient tool for PDF processing. You can do even more with the extension if you have a subscription to Adobe Acrobat Pro DC – change the order of pages in a document, split pages, save documents in other formats, or protect them with a password. In this case, data processing takes place in the Adobe cloud.
