Google Docs has a webbased PDF reader that far outshines Adobes Reader, did you know? Did you also know that you can now view any online PDF document using this reader? Well you can, and using this freshly brewed bookmarklet, you can turn any hyperlink that points to a PDF into a comfy Google Viewer readable PDF. Drag one of these bookmarklet links to your bookmarks bar:
- Bookmarklet: View PDFs using Google Viewer
- Bookmarklet: View PDFs, TIFFs and PPTs using Google Viewer
[Update]: Since the Google Viewer also supports PowerPoint PPT and TIFF image files, I’ve added an alternative multi-bookmarklet (per request) that does all three filetypes.
[Update 2]: The bookmarklets should now work with uppercase file extensions. (Thanks Tyler).
[Update 3]: This greasemonkey script may work for you.
