When opening a PDF in Chrome, it is not fit to width by default. To achieve this, one has to click on a button that appears in the lower right part of the screen twice.

Is there a way to avoid this? Perhaps an extension?

It requires creating an iframe, so it may not be ideal, but my solution provides some reusable code that I use on my websites. HTH!
