Uses HTML5 to display PDF files directly in the browser.

PDF.js is a Portable Document Format (PDF) viewer that is built with HTML5. PDF.js is community-driven and supported by Mozilla Labs. Our goal is to create a general-purpose, web standards-based platform for parsing and rendering PDFs. This extension provides PDF.js as the default PDF viewer in Chrome. If you want to use this viewer to view local files, visit chrome://extensions/?id=oemmndcbldboiebfnladdacbdfmadadm and put a check before "Allow access to file URLs". Please report any issues at https://github.com/mozilla/pdf.js/issues Don't have a Github account? I also accept feedback at rob@robwu.nl Known issue: PDF files generated via a form (POST request) cannot be viewed. Contains opt-out telemetry since version 1.5.285, see https://github.com/Rob--W/pdfjs-telemetry#privacy-policy

Works great! The default PDF viewer in Chrome is complete garbage. This extension brings the Firefox PDF viewer to Chrome. I only wish it would not change the favicon of the tabs - distinguishing between multiple PDFs is now a tiny bit more difficult.
