However with the integration of PDF Viewer in Gmail, users can view the actual PDF file and later on decide to download it to their desktop, print it or even view it as a HTML, which was the default action earlier.


The PDF Viewer also has a navigation option where you can browse through the entire PDF page by page, definitely useful since PDF is becoming a standard format of document exchange these days.
