What is the need of PDF viewers (I'm concerned about Adobe Acrobat Reader DC) when you can view PDF files on Chrome on a desktop?
Since PDF is an open specification there are other PDF viewers to choose from than the ones available from Adobe and in their applications. But yes if you set Chrome as the default viewer for PDF you don need another vieweras long as you only print or scroll through the PDF. But I personally like the multi-page thumbnails or index view provided by some of the other viewers over the simple scrolling mode of Chrome so I use evince on Linux and also use the Poppler utilities to extract content split pages etc. from PDF files. Check out List of PDF software - Wikipedia s#Viewers_4 for other options.
