I need a pdf reader software which supports tabbed reading on single file. That means, assume that my pdf file has 20 chapters. While i am reading chapter 1 in a tab, on the same time, i need to open chapter 2 (or any chapter) in another tab. Now i am using Foxit Reader. But it doesn't support this feature. Edit: My OS - Windows8 32 bit And i prefer free softwares.

    What OS must be supported?

  • If we don't find one, then consider using bookmarks for quick switching between chapters, or running multiple versions of the PDF reader.

How about Google Chrome / Chromium? Here is a local PDF that I opened in two tabs, and that I can navigate independently:

Multiple tabs opened

Other browsers may also be capable of the same, but I only tested this in Chromium.

  • I have tested with Chrome. But i need this feature, that is : If i right click on contents page i need an option "Open in new tab".
