If you still haven’t discovered the wonders of doing PDF edits and conversions online, then its high time that you check it out. Gone are the days when PDF creation, editing, and encryption are exclusive to separate, standalone PDF applications. These software types usually will cost you a pretty penny to purchase, with some demanding a yearly subscription. In this article, we’ve collated five underrated reasons to convince you of transitioning:
Browser-based PDF converters are some of the most improved web tools in the past decade. The early days of this technology didn’t have the smoothness and intuitiveness that the modern version has, but that’s because it was a prisoner of the technology available at the time. Today, with standardized Internet speeds and more people using the program, it has become a breeze to edit, convert, and encrypt PDF files online.
So if you don’t necessarily work with PDF all day and that you only need an editor or converter every now and then ditch your application and bookmark a browser-based application instead, like PDF Bear. Converting PDF to PNG and other image files is a joy to do, and you can access the tool anywhere in the world. That’s convenient for you!
When converting to and from a PDF file, one of the most important factors is the quality of conversion that’s going to occur. With browser-based applications, you are guaranteed that the resulting image file, whether its a JPG or a PNG is high quality. You have the option to decide on what quality you want to convert to, and that’s key in making sure that your experience is top-notch.
Browser-based PDF applications like PDFBear doesn’t need you to be in front of a specific computer or laptop to do edits from. Since it’s web-based, all you need is working Internet access and a browser. That means you can do PDF conversions from your phone, tablet, PC, laptop, even on a game console that has a browser.
Make sure that your browser is updated, though. Chrome is the top choice when it comes to what browsers to use, but Safari and Mozilla Firefox are also great choices. Access to the file you want to convert is necessary as well, so it’s better to download your resources on cloud-based storage for easier access.
Third-party PDF editing software needs installation before you fully access the features within it. Browser-based PDF applications don’t need to be installed on your devices. This is very convenient when you want a quick and easy solution to a conversion situation that may crop up at an inopportune time.
You don’t need to search, download, and install software to do an edit that will only take no more than 2 minutes. With browser-based applications, you can just go to your browser, upload the file, download the resulting document, and you’re good to go.
If you’re worried about the privacy of the PDF file you are uploading, don’t. All browser-based PDF applications and the corresponding tools are encrypted, which means that the files you upload are encrypted from end to end as well. As an additional privacy measure, all uploaded files are deleted from the server after an hour.
Transitioning from a PDF software to a browser-based PDF application may be a big ask, and it is understandable if you want to try the latter option first before going all in. Always remember that going online is the better and more convenient option, and we don’t have to vouch for it – once you try it, the difference should be glaring!
