Chrome Dev Channel subscriber? There’s a PDF viewer fix waiting for you.

Just a quick update note for those of you subscribed to the Chrome Dev Channel. If you were a Mac or Linux user frustrated by the broken PDF viewer extension, you get to be happy today.

The Chromium team has pushed a new update to the Dev Channel that will fix the errors that were displaying. Mac and Linux users on Chrome should now be able to view PDF’s natively, without having to use Adobe Reader or other software.
