Native default PDF viewers in web browsers have limited functionality, and they only let users view or download files. When some complex tasks such as editing or commenting in the PDFs arise, they necessitate the usage of dedicated software like Adobe Acrobat Reader.
Adobe today released Acrobat Chrome and Edge extensions, which let users access its PDF tools directly through their browser. These will let you fill out, sign, and mark up documents without switching applications. Once the extension has been downloaded, it has to be set up as the default PDF viewer in your browser's content settings.
Some of the Acrobat tools, including the ability to open PDF files, download or print them, add comments, and fill and sign them, will be available for free inside the Chrome extension. This can come in handy for users, who are reliant on the app for adding comments, markups, or highlighting the notes or lecture slides. Additionally, e-signatures can now also be added without leaving the browser.
Those having an Adobe Acrobat Pro DC subscription can do even more with the extension, like convert a PDF to a Microsoft Word document, convert web pages to PDFs and rotate, delete or reorder them.
