Adobe Acrobat has added an extension for Google Chrome that allows users to access PDF editing tools directly through their browsers. The new extension will allow users to view, convert, compress and sign PDFs on the browser without switching apps. After the extension is downloaded and installed on the browser, users can share files with others to collect all comments in one place. People with an Adobe Acrobat DC subscription can also convert web pages to PDF.
The release of the Google Chrome extensions was announced via a blog on October 12. With the latest update, opening PDF using Adobe Acrobat for Chrome works just like an online PDF editor. Users will be able to fill out and sign a file or annotate a PDF with comments, highlights, and drawings. Besides, they can share a file with others to collect all the comments in one place. The Fill & Sign tool in Adobe Acrobat extension will allow users to fill out forms and add signatures for free without leaving the browser. Free access also allows users to download and print documents.
Users with an Adobe Acrobat Pro DC subscription will get additional tools with the latest update. These include converting PDF to Microsoft Word document from browser, converting web pages to PDF, preserving layout, formatting and links of captured pages.
