Five advanced Google Chrome hacks to level up your browsing – Popular Science
Photos, text files, and PDFs also work, which saves you the trouble of having to hunt around for another application. For visuals, Chrome gives you basic on-screen viewing options, such as zoom controls and a print button when you look at PDFs.
To open a file, just launch a new browser tab, then drag the file into it. If Chrome can’t open the file you drop in, you get a save dialog instead. You can control these file-viewing tabs as you would any other web page, so you can pin them to the left to free up extra screen space.
You may not ditch Photoshop for Chrome any time soon, but if you’re spending most of your time in a browser anyway, having a built-in file viewer and media player can prove handy in all kinds of ways.
