Google has announced that their Chrome browser is getting its own PDF viewer.

The awesome new feature doesn’t require anything other than the latest beta build of Chrome.  You don’t need any additional software or plugs ins like Adobe Reader for the feature to work.  That is also a nice thing when it comes to security considering how many security problems that Adobe has, especially with their Reader software.  The viewer also has some extra sandboxing for even more security from malware and other security threats.

It sounds like they still have some work to do before it comes out the to stable version of chrome but if you want to check it out now, go download the beta version of Chrome.
