Somewhere during the Summer, I updated my Mac’s software and Google Chrome stopped displaying PDFs correctly. Searching for a fix turned out to be painfully hard but I finally nailed it today. For future reference:
- Go to Java Preferences
- Disable the most recent Java versions in use (for me, 1.6.0_26-b03-384)
On a side note, I have to “blame” Google for not showing me the right results straight away. I had to use “Advance Search” and trim the dates of the results for the last month to get a meaningful link, otherwise it was all pointing to Adobe PDF viewer and/or Chrome in Linux..
