This extension uses Mozilla's pdf.js library to display PDF files in your browser. It will be used as a replacement for the default PDF viewer. This extension supports rendering remote and local PDF files on top frames. The extension provides the 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.

If you prefer the extension to parse PDF files in frame elements use the right-click context menu checkbox

User reviews
I get really annoyed by the touch UI layout of chrome pdf viewer. Found this best extension that is updated regularly which doesn't occupy more vertical screen space.
Works as advertised. The options to display embedded PDFs is very useful. It'd be great if the URL bar contained just the file rather than chrome extension prefix, but I realize this may be hard to implement.
