Opening a new application on your computer or searching for a web app for PDF editing can be a hassle, especially when you’re in a hurry. And the native default PDF viewer in your web browser has limited functionality, allowing you only to view or download PDF files.
But the Adobe Acrobat extension for Google Chrome, allows you to effortlessly comment on, mark up, fill in, and sign PDFs, and more — all right from your browser window.

Download the Acrobat extension for free to unlock the power of PDF tools in Chrome where you need them most and go beyond simply viewing and downloading. You’ll save time and energy by filling out, signing, and marking up your documents quickly, without skipping a beat or switching applications.

Intuitive online PDF tools for everyone
When you are viewing a PDF online, sometimes you need to sign it digitally, add a comment, and send it back. If you’re not already an Adobe Acrobat user, you can open PDFs and view them with your internet browser’s native PDF reader — but you can’t do other important tasks.

- Business and financial documents — Comment on annual reports, white papers, spreadsheets, brochures, and marketing materials
