Google’s decision to integrate PDF into Google Chrome helps to establish the brand as a leading web content developer, one industry commentator believes.
Shane Wright, IT director at eDigitalResearch, commented on the organisation’s move to bring increased Adobe PDF support to its browser, which means files render in the same way as HTML.
He said the announcement goes "hand in hand" with the development of Google Chrome while revolutionising the different web interfaces available.
It will also support new standards such as HTML5, Mr Wright continued.
In his opinion, integrating PDF is part of Google’s plan to "make life easier for end users who largely can remain unaware of plug-ins" after it previously announced its plans to integrate the Flash plug-in.
He also believes there will always be a place for the technology, as it allows data in different formats to be handled by a variety of browsers, whatever their age.
