  1. Under Linux

  2. Within a web browser

    • Within Google (a Google product)

      • Presently it seems Google only has a PDF viewer (example https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzT5aiw6etU7aTdzZFBuREY5NXM/edit ).
        *This is part of http://docs.Google.com so allows semi-full featured comments (nested to 2 levels with the 2nd level comments being editable, plus 1st level comments can be alternately marked resolved or unresolved with a 2nd level time stamp each time).
        *This allows any PDF to be viewed & searched & copied from, but one cannot edit it including cannot complete PDF forms.
        **To edit the PDF in any way, including form content (so including digital signatures), one would have to, in order:
        ***download a version (typically latest) to a local computer
        ***use a PDF editor (as, for Linux, Evince or Okular) to edit
        ***manually upload a new version (by finding the online document in http://docs.google.com) BUT NOT OPENING IT but rather right-clicking then picking “Manage Revisions”) then “Upload” a new revision.
        ***then delete the local copy (to avoid confusion)
