Adobe and Google are together simplifying the way users create, convert, compress, sign, and design PDF documents on Chrome, courtesy of PDF.new. Recently, Google Registry announced a .new domain extension. A lot of companies including Spotify, Medium, and now Adobe have joined this new (no pun intended) initiative.
Adobe Acrobat Online launches ‘PDF.new’
Adobe is now making it easier to do more with PDFs in Google’s Chrome browser. Users can not only create PDF documents easily but they can also sign then, compress PDF documents, and convert the existing images to PDF documents within seconds.
“We’re launching a plethora of free PDF actions this year – giving everyone access to 20 free, super simple Acrobat online tools in 2020,” said Lisa Croft, Director of Digital Media Product Enablement at Adobe. Launching 20 super simple free PDF actions in 2020 is no small feat, but we’re up for the challenge.
- PDF.New makes it easier to convert to PDF. All users need to do is select and upload a Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or image file (JPG, PNG, TIFF) to convert to PDF.
- Sign.New, on the other hand, allows users to add text boxes, checkmarks, and your signature or initials to PDF documents. Once you create a signature, you can add it anywhere in the PDF file.
- Adobe has its extension-specific PDF conversion short link in the form of JPGtoPDF.New. PDF conversion supports a whole host of image and document formats including DOCX, DOC, XLSX, XLS, PPTX, PPT, JPG, PNG, TIFF, and BMP.
- Adobe further allows Chrome users to compress PDF documents, courtesy of CompressPDF.New.
- Last but not least, Adobe’s new Create.New domain is the destination to Adobe Spark Post. It allows users to create content that works best for social media audiences.
It goes without saying, the access to these ‘New’ websites is not limited to Chrome. You might want to check out Google’s whats.new page.
In related news, Google Chrome is working on a new Tab Search feature to let users search through hundreds of opened tabs, groups, and windows. The feature is likely to bring a new tab search option through a button on the browser toolbar, which will expectedly provide users with a bubble view to access the new search bar.
