We’re showing off how to do this in Windows, but theoretically it would work for OS X or Linux as well. If you’ve tried it, let us know in the comments.

I wonder if you could fill in any fields in a PDF form when opened under this method? Has anybody tried it ? [Like the typewriter in a purchased PDF reader]

No, I don't see how you could. On my laptop I will never need to edit a PDF so it fits my read only needs.

The default PDF viewer in chrome is terrible.
Do yourself a favor & download the free PDF-XChange Viewer

Tracker Software Products :: PDF-XChange Viewer, Free PDF Reader

After installing you have to enter about: plugins into the address bar & disable the Chrome PDF viewer.
This is how a PDF opened in Opera or Firefox & Chrome looks with PDF-XChange.
