PDF file links don’t have to open in your browser

by Tris Hussey on February 21st, 2007

PDF files are great.  I use the all the time and when I have a government form to fill out, I try to see if they have  a PDF version.  Well that’s great, but the most annoying features of Acrobat is that by default it opens PDF links you click on within your browser.  Firefox has a handy extension to take care of this.  For us IE/Maxthon users all you have to do is open Acrobat, go to preferences on the Edit menu, select Internet options and uncheck the open in browser option.

Isn’t it annoying when you accidentally click on a link to a PDF document? Then your system stalls for about 20 seconds as it tries to open Acrobat Reader?

Not only should this speed up your surfing, but it should also reduce your browser’s memory load and keep it from hanging.
