Portable PDF Document viewer (reader) ✅ Ad-free.
✅✅✅ A Portable Document Format (PDF) viewer based on Mozilla's PDF.js library
This extension uses Mozilla's pdf.js library to display PDF files in your browser. It will be used as a replacement to the default PDF viewer. There is a support for remote and local files only on top frames. The extension provides the exact same experience as you open PDF files in the Firefox browser.
To allow the extension to parse local PDF files, you need to enable "Access Local Files" in the extension manager.
Uses HTML5 to display PDF files directly in the browser.
PDF.js is a Portable Document Format (PDF) viewer that is built with HTML5.
✅✅ PDF.js is community-driven and supported by Mozilla Labs. Our goal is to create a general-purpose, web standards-based platform for parsing and rendering PDFs.
This extension provides PDF.js as the default PDF viewer in Chrome.
If you want to use this viewer to view local files, visit chrome://extensions/?id=oemmndcbldboiebfnladdacbdfmadadm and put a check before "Allow access to file URLs".

Portable Document Format (PDF) is a cross-platform open electronic document format originally developed by Adobe Systems using a number of PostScript language features. It is primarily intended for the presentation of printed products in electronic form. There are many programs for viewing, as well as the official free Adobe Reader program. A significant number of modern professional printing equipment has hardware support for the PDF format, which allows you to print documents in this format without using any software. The traditional way of creating PDF documents is a virtual printer, that is, the document as such is prepared in its own specialized program - a graphics program or word processor, CAD, etc., and then exported to PDF format for electronic distribution, transfer to a printing house, etc. etc.
