View PDFs Without Saving on Mobile

  • I read a lot of datasheets and when when I am using Opera on my PC, everything is fine because it opens the datasheet without saving to my computer (at least temporarily saving it). On my Android device, I am tired of having to save PDFs even if I just going to view them for a second. I think, Opera for Android should have an option for viewing PDFs in the browser without permanently saving it to the device. The microcontroller datasheets are about 200 pages long and I already have several copies of them saved to my device. None of the browsers I have tested supported PDF viewing, so I think Opera should continue be the different one and best browser, again:)

  • Changed title to "Saving", as you can't view anything without downloading it first.

  • Do you mean, name it to a constant name, so that only a single file will be stored, because there is a replace option? That's a very clever and useful idea, thank you:) Still, integrated pdf viewing would be quicker anyway. From now on it would't be as crucial, but I would appreciate if Opera could add it during their spare time:)
