PDF Hammer is a great complement to the rest of our free product family
Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) June 3, 2008
Nitro PDF Software today announced it has acquired PDF Hammer, the leading Web-based PDF editor, and launched a new version of the site featuring an all-new interface and additional must-have tools. The service makes it easier than ever for people to edit PDF files from any platform, without the need to install or purchase software.
PDF Hammer, the first online PDF editor and one that is completely free to use, enables people to easily edit files via its intuitive WYSIWYG-style visual editor. Once a user uploads PDF files, all pages are displayed inside the Web-browser window, allowing easy viewing, selecting and editing -- all without the need for a PDF viewer to be installed.
The service includes tools to complete common PDF page editing tasks, including combining files together, removing pages from existing files, and rearranging pages to form a new document. With the new features added by Nitro, users can now secure their PDFs with password-based security, and edit document metadata.
PDF Hammer becomes the fourth product in Nitro's free software range, which includes the world's #1 free PDF creator PrimoPDF, the online PDF creator PrimoOnline, and the #1 PDF extension for Firefox -- PDF Download.
"PDF Hammer is a great complement to the rest of our free product family," said Sam Chandler, CEO, Nitro PDF Software. "It continues our mission to provide PDF tools that help all PDF users -- from the occasional to the professional. We now have over 20 million people using Nitro's free products and we're excited to welcome PDF Hammer into the fold. Of course, if you need to perform advanced PDF editing on the desktop, you should take a look at Nitro PDF Professional, but PDF Hammer is great for tasks like document assembly and adding security to your PDF files."
PDF Hammer is immediately available and requires no registration to use. Visit the PDFHammer.com site for more.
