Chrome has a fairly decent built-in PDF viewer module at its disposal, suitable for basic-level viewing. If you don’t need editing features, then you’re unlikely to need third-party software to open PDF format. The capabilities of the browser are sufficient.
Pages translation
It’s hard to impress with the built-in translation function in the browser anymore. Google Chrome uses its own company service for this purpose. In the application settings, it is enough to add the necessary languages and specify for which of them the translator should work. However, there are also more specific cases.
What a screenshot is, hopefully, doesn’t need explaining. There are many ways and tools for taking website screenshots in Chrome, but we’ll focus on three very different ones. Each of the methods described below implies that you can take a screenshot of either a visible part or the entire page of a website. You just have to choose the one that suits you best.
Flash Player
Flash Player is a technology for creating games, animations, and advanced computations, which is integrated into browsers as a plugin. Back in mid-2017, developers announced the final phase-out by the end of 2020.
Hardware acceleration
Hardware Acceleration (HA) is one of the settings parameters in Google Chrome that allows the browser to utilize not only the processor but also the graphics card. This is necessary for more efficient rendering of HTML pages, decoding of “heavy” videos, rendering complex animations in Flash Player, and 3D graphics based on WebGL.
Support for WebGL technology of the latest version 2.0 has been included in Google Chrome since the 56th release. However, users’ requests regarding issues with displaying 3D graphics in the browser can still be encountered on various online resources. Let’s consider all possible reasons.
