Chrome 8 released with PDF reader

by Antony

Google today released Chrome 8 (shipping version). The stable release adds a new built-in PDF reader that, like Safari, saves having to use a companion application or plug-in. The tool is sandboxed to prevent a rogue PDF from compromising the browser and posing a security threat to the rest of the system.

People also noted that developers have also revealed that Chrome 8 may have the underlying framework for the Chrome Web Store.

Chrome is based on WebKit engine.
