I use chrome and I can view PDF URLs in my browsers as PDF file. I would like to know if this is something that chrome natively supports or is it because of the adobe plugin?
I basically need to understand how browsers support PDF viewing and which ones do.
Reason that I'm asking this is I'm building a PDF gallery viewer. I looked into PDF.js, and apparently it's awesome because it converts PDF into native web format so that all browser support it. But from what I see all browsers already support viewing PDFs ( atleast the ones I could get my hands on ) so why is PDF.js awesome?
