Adobe launches a Google Chrome extension to edit PDFs and perform basic operations easily and quickly from the browser
If you need to edit a PDF file, usually you need to download a dedicated application like Adobe Acrobat. And if you want advanced editing features, you often have to pay. That being said, if you need quick and easy operations, Adobe may have the perfect solution.
Adobe launches Google Chrome extension to edit PDFs
The company has just announced a new extension designed for the Google Chrome web browser. With this extension, users can make changes easily and quickly, including adding a signature to their documents, without having to download any app or even pay anything.
To perform basic operations easily and quickly from the browser
According to the Adobe statement, “opening a new application on your computer or searching for a web application for editing PDFs can be overwhelming, especially if you are in a hurry. And the native PDF viewer built into your browser by default has limited functionality, only allowing you to view or download PDF files. But the Adobe Acrobat extension for Google Chrome allows you to effortlessly comment, mark up, fill in, sign PDFs, and more – all from your browser window.”
Some of the features that users can expect to experience include the ability to comment on PDFs, make certain adjustments, annotate, fill out forms, and sign documents.
Obviously, there are limitations compared to what can be done with a dedicated PDF application or via Acrobat for the web but, as said before, this extension should be sufficient in many cases, for simple modifications and fast.
If you are interested, know that the extension in question is available for download via the Chrome Web Store. Do not hesitate to test, you will be easily won over.
