Google Chrome Beta Updated To Chrome 8, Adds Inline PDF Viewer
By on November 4th, 2010

A few months back I had reported that had started to display PDF Files inline. Google Chrome beta users will now be able to get the inline PDF viewer in the latest update v8.0.552.28.

Google Chrome PDF Inline

The feature which was first spotted by me in version 6.0.495.0 dev took longer than expected to make it to the beta channel. Chrome’s new PDF viewer makes it easier to open PDF Files in the browser itself, eliminating need for external PDF readers. Google Chrome 8.0.552.28 has been updated for all platforms. You should be able to view PDF files inline in Chrome once you have updated to the beta version.

    Tried the inline viewer. I didn’t like it. Adobe’s viewer offers features that I can’t seem to live without. Yeah, I know that it’s bloated and insecure … oh well.
