  • (2020-10-15) Reid Manares: Doesn't open my file if its directory has some spaces (e.g., C:\Users\A(space)B\Documents\C(space)D.pdf). Please fix this ASAP!
  • (2020-10-11) Keith West: Great simple pdf reader. Hunted around all afternoon to find a simple one that worked!
  • (2020-09-27) leticia medina: no me deja ver los PDF
  • (2020-09-22) Simplificando_FX: Único que funcionou.
  • (2020-09-18) Bryan Moffit: Allows you to set your default viewing preferences. This is pretty awesome for those of us that *always* want "Page Fit" and "Odd Spread" for viewing documents on a large screen. No need to change the view each time.
  • (2020-09-16) Tia Addina: Very useful extension. Thanks for making it. My only gripe is that when I want to print a page or page range, it will "prepare the document for printing" and it does this for the entire document. This isn't practical for, say, books that contain 500+ pages: It just takes too long. Would appreciate having an option to select a page or page range first and then have the extension prepare only those pages of the document for printing. Thanks!
  • (2020-09-10) Ankur Sharma: I had liked this in terms of a pdf viewer. However, it has a major flaw that will cause certain video players on sites to not function properly. I guess I will have to find a different one.
  • (2020-08-27) Jackeline Carmo: Muito bom! Meu problema foi resolvido.
  • (2020-08-04) Joseph Gonzalez: Works better than the chromebook default pdf viewer. But when I set this to be enabled in incognito, whenever I "x"ed out of an incognito webpage, my chromebook would chrash and restart.
  • (2020-07-29) John Chea: Great add on but the "Apago PDF Enhancer" is annoying and distracting

  • (2020-06-23) anonymus mrs.: 超好用,各大廠牌的瀏覽器應該要自動有這個功能啊~~太感謝 希望能一直支援~就算要錢的也一定買
  • (2020-04-02) nelup: Al fin una herramienta de lectura rápida y que recuerda la posición de lectura que llevaba. Otras herramientas ofrecen edición del documento, lo que las hace pesadas y que consuman muchos recursos. Por fin una buena aplicación! ¡Excelente trabajo!!
  • (2020-03-19) PubliKanguro Tecno - Marketing: Esta extensión funciona correctamente! Me ha servido mucho y la recomiendo 100%
  • (2020-02-19) Petr Doležal: Love the ease of use. Especially wrapped scrolling when you can just zoom out and the pages tile in multiple columns flawlessly and automatically.
  • (2020-02-14) Renan Santos: Todo pdf que tento ler ele diz que não existe.
  • (2020-02-05) Halil Ibrahim Çağşar: pdfleri nasıl indiriyorsunuz
  • (2020-02-05) Nathan Ross: This removes all lag when viewing PDFs on my Samsung Chromebook Pro. Somehow, this extension displays (local) PDF files more efficiently than the built-in PDF viewer on Chrome OS. I am very grateful to the developer of this app.
  • (2020-01-24) Biraj Dhakal: Returns a very poor quality pdf after download
  • (2020-01-23) Ian Harshbarger: Works great! No issues.
  • (2020-01-19) Maneesh Verma: Best and the most useful extension. Saves memory .
  • (2020-01-12) Jeffrey Ten Grotenhuis: Marvellous. I open dozens of pdfs a day and this saves me time getting the zoom right
  • (2020-01-06) Christine Chuang: 太神奇了~整個就是...嗨翻天!還有謝謝身邊的107的你們~~~

    Hi, Is there a way to make it so that the PDF doesn't download to the default download folder and lets you have the option of selecting a download folder for each file? This is the only thing stopping me from using this extension.

  • (2020-06-07, v:2.3.164) OTAVIO SANTANA: I miss the writing (like Web Paint) feature in presentation mode
    The extension is excellent. I just missed resources to write over the pdf in presentation mode, like the LuminPDF features, with different types of pens and colors. In my opinion, this would make the PDF Viewer extension far superior to anything I've seen available for this type of feature in Chrome. Can we expect this resource in the future? Or is there any other extension that works with PDF Viewer for this purpose? (I've tried the "Web Paint" extension, but it does not work integrated with PDF Viewer.) Thanks in advance.
  • (2020-05-28, v:2.3.164) Stefane Guevremont: Outlook on the web download button on PDF files does not work correctly.
    Using Outlook on the web, for a single PDF file, the download button triggers PDF Viewer and opens the PDF file instead of downloading it.
  • (2020-05-26, v:2.3.164) Michel Plungjan: PDF viewer Version 2.3.164 does not set referer (in iframe)
    Hi, It seems that the PDF viewer extension does not set the referer, at least not in an iFrame. Is that a feature or a bug and can it be changed to allow a referer default and to switch it off if it is a feature?
  • (2020-05-19, v:2.3.164) Postkasten T: When I click on a PDF it opens in default Chrome PDF viewer. How can I fix this?
