How to enable Nitro PDF Reader 2’s browser plugin

 

Our new kid on the block — Nitro Reader 2 — has made more than just waves among the passionate Nitro community, by delivering new features and performance updates and adding that extra polish to Nitro’s free PDF powerhouse.

Among the new features, one of the most popular requests from Nitro Reader users was the addition of a browser plugin enabling you to view online PDF files directly inside your web browser.
