This is a screenshot of the Chrome's built-in PDF reader. Clicking the "Yes" button opens get.adobe.com/reader/.

I don't know why it can't load the whole PDF, but I wonder to which Adobe products Google have with, in addition Flash (cf. blog.chromium.org/2010/03/brin ...).

Two things

1> I am not seeing such alert message. (Using Chrome 10.0.648.6 dev & 10.0.649.0 canary build)

2> Chrome's built-in PDF reader is based on Foxit Reader and not on Adobe's. (googlesystem.blogspot.com/2010 ...)

It makes sense to recommend installing Adobe Reader if the built-in PDF reader can't handle a file properly.
