Browser extension for in-page PDF viewing for PeerJ and arXiv. Currently only set up for Chrome; Safari and Firefox support will hopefully come without too much difficulty.

To try it out:

  • Clone or download this repository to a folder.
  • In Chrome, go to chrome://extensions and click "Load unpacked extension...".
  • Choose the folder you downloaded and make sure the extension is enabled.
  • Go to a PeerJ or arXiv preprint, for example, and wish for a side-by-side PDF view.
  • Click Show PDF in the navigation controls to grant your wish. Click Hide PDF to take things back to normal.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
