Suggest any options for document viewer in the website


Recommended Posts

In the past when a client has asked us to show PDFs in the browser rather than being downloaded we've used Mozilla PDF.js  and then created a link that passes the doc name in the form pdfjs/web/viewer.html?file=whatever.pdf

In this day and age though I'd question whether this is really necessary. Most browsers have built in pdf viewers anyway : https://caniuse.com/pdf-viewer and if you're overriding the users choice as to which pdf viewer they use then it's probably not great for usability.
