Chrome finally gets an Adobe Acrobat PDF Editor


You don't need a special app or software to sign or edit your PDF documents any more - Adobe has finally released extensions for chrome and edge browsers to help you handle that task without hassles.

Mind you, this browser extensions are different from the Acrobat web that was updated recently with new features. 


If you edit PDFs very often, this new adobe extension for chrome and edge browsers may not really be recommended for you but if you are the type that only get to edit PDF documents once in a while just like me then this new extension is what you need.

To add this extension to your chrome browser, you just need to follow the usual steps in adding an extension to chrome as described below;

  • Click the 3-dot icon at the top-right corner of your chrome
