New To IE9 From Chrome

Is there any way to view PDFs through IE9 like I could do in Chrome? Looking for a tweak, plug-in, or add-on, not a program like Adobe, Nitro or Foxit.

Thanks in advance!

A more descriptive Thread title would have been " How to view PDFs in IE9."

Recommend the free PDF-XChange Viewer its faster & better all round than the Adobe Acrobat Reader.
The plug-ins for IE 9 & Firefox are included & are installed by default.

PDF-XChange Viewer is Free
Quote:
The Free PDF-XChange Viewer FREE/PRO is compatible with all Windows Versions from Windows 2000 and later both 32 & 64 bit architecture.
Sorry - but we do not offer a version for Windows 95, 98, Me or Windows NT.
Note: The .exe installers auto-detect System Architecture and install 32 and 64 bit components accordingly.
I had to check IE9 64 bit never used it before, the PDF XChange plugin was installed & working fine.

When I started using it about a year ago it was much quicker opening PDF files than Acrobat Reader
