I have a pc newly installed and noticed that chrome has a built in pdf viewer that seems to be light weight and decided it seems good enough to avoid acrobat reader download and installation.

I now realized I need to be able to email documents as an attachment. I cannot send a link because there might be times that I do not want to have the recipient see where the pdf comes from.

Is it possible to mail pdf when using chrome pdf viewer directly from the browser or should I just install acrobat reader?


You can use this chrome extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jcanbebjhbcobnnmbbcljaehnimiikgg

It uses gmail API to email PDF directly from Chrome PDF viewer.
