Safe to use Chrome as PDF reader secruity-wise?
I have been reading reports of Adobe Reader exploits. Since I only read PDFs and do not need any extra options or anything, I am satisfied just using Chrome to read PDFs. I uninstalled Adobe Acrobat reader and linked PDF files to be opened by Chrome.
I have no PDF addons on Chrome so it just using the native ability of Chrome to read PDF files. I would think this is safe but I want to make sure there are no security concerns doing this over Adobe Reader or any dedicated PDF reader program?
Would it be better security-wise to use Adobe Reader or is Chrome safer?
