Google Drive (previously Google Docs) is a superb way to collaborate on documents, and upload any type of files to the cloud and keep them in sync with different devices. Viewing documents and even editing works great, but there are some things that you still can’t do in Google Drive. Let’s say you don’t have a PDF reader installed on your PC and you are reading the PDF on Google Drive. In such a case, it might be difficult to remember the exact page which you were reading previously. Well, if you’re using Google Chrome browser, then there’s a solution.
Enter PDF Bookmarker for Google Docs, a Chrome extension that lets you bookmark pages in PDF, which you’ve opened through Google Drive (Docs). This extension smartly remembers your bookmarked page and opens exactly that page when you open the PDF again. Apart from that, it will also sync the bookmark to the cloud, which means that when you open the PDF in Drive from some other computer, you’ll be presented with the same bookmarked page.
