Google and Adobe introduce shortcut tools let you create, compress and convert PDF files
The Google Chrome browser is undeniably one of the best web browsers for internet users with its user-friendly interface.
Recently, Google has rolled out a bunch of new handy features such as focus mode, extensions toolbar menu, tab groups, the real search box in the new tab page, tab hover cards, text fragment anchor, global media controls, Windows OS spell checker, back-forward cache, heavy ad intervention, pdf two-up view as well as quieter messaging to shut off instantly the annoying notifications prompt of all websites.
The above-mentioned features would prove a great boon for chrome users to enhance productivity at work and to make their experience better.
As of yet, download later to schedule downloads, read later to save tabs for later, save web pages as tagged PDFs, the ability to copy images in chrome is in the pipeline that is not available to the general public, it is expected that these might be available publicly shortly. These much-awaited features might be an important milestone for the Chrome browser.
Thanks to a joint effort between Google and Adobe, Chrome has now incorporated the ability to create, compress, and convert documents to PDF that had been much-wanted for a long time. These abilities can be accessed in the form of shortcuts in the address bar of the browser.
If you want to avail these services more than once a day, then for that you will have to create an adobe account or you can sign in with your existing Google, Facebook and Apple as well for one of Adobe’s Acrobat plans.
These features are similar to .new links series which were introduced by Google to create a new Google document (doc.new) and a spreadsheet (sheet.new) or Google form (form.new) respectively.
