30 years or so as a professional software engineer, working in computer-aided design, petrochemicals, semiconductor manufacturing and publishing.

Large amounts of experience with languages and systems now largely defunct. Come to think of it, most of my past employers are gone too.

More recent experience in C++, Python and JavaScript.

about:plugins shows that Chrome PDF Viewer is installed and enabled. And if I drag a PDF file from Explorer into Chrome it does open up.

Thanks. I think your approach is probably the best one I'll find. Unfortunately a bit more work than I was hoping for, but there we go.
