    Default How do you get a PDF to open in browser?

    Why can't we open a PDF in a browser like you can on a desktop or laptop? Trying Chrome and Firefox and the stock browser and all want to download it first, then you have to open it with another app like hancon office or whatever. I don't want to download the PDF, then read it, then navigate to the file and delete it when done.

    Mobile browsers on Android don't work that way, they don't have the plug-in support that desktop browsers do.

    Thanks Muzzy. We sure need a plug-in for that because I want to use this tablet for real work.

    Yeah cleanup can be a pain but since I'm not pressed for space doing so once a month is fine with me. Personally i prefer downloading PDFs anyway. Makes referring to them later easier and often i'll annotate them for future use or for commenting to others.

    So far, I've been able to use the NP12.2 to download, fill out, and email edited PDFs with ease. I accepted a job offer, and the email I received came with a few documents that needed my signature on them. If you're trying to view PDFs in a browser, that may not be the way to go.
