How to open a local PDF file in Chrome?

Question:But I'm not sure they answer my question. I'm trying not to install any PDF reader (Adobe sucks) and know that Chrome will open PDF I open from the internet. So my question is why won't it work if the PDF is local to my machine? Is there a workaround/plug-in/other browser I can use to accomplish this? The argument of security is totally bogus since how is a PDF I'm opening on the internet any more secure/safe than a PDF I have on my local machine? Is there any solution on VeryPDF?
