Why you should not use a PDF for online viewing.

PDF was made for distributing documents for "print", and if it is intended for your users to print out a document then a PDF is what you should use. But, keep in mind that PDF's were never intended to be viewed in a browser. PDF's are usually large files, even when separated into separate PDF's they are usually at least 1MB, compared to the 40kb or less of an HTML document.

"PDF is great for distributing documents that need to be printed. But that is all it's good for. No matter how tempting it might be, you should never use PDF for content that you expect users to read online.

Forcing users to browse PDF documents makes your website's usability about 300% worse relative to HTML pages."

- Jakob Nielsen, Nielsen Norman Group

  • PDF was optimized for printing letter-sized sheets of paper, not for display in a browser.
  • PDF's typically lack hypertext, you don't need it to print.
  • PDF's can be huge files. 1-5MB of information.
