What is Chrome PDF Viewer Plug-in?
In version 8, Google Chrome introduced a free PDF viewer, installed by default. While this plug-in lacks many features of the Adobe Acrobat Plug-in, it is much faster and lighter, and updates with the browser rather than an external utility.

Said about Chrome PDF Viewer Plug-in as an alternative
On Linux specifically, few PDF viewers have support for tabs which I find keep things tidy and the chrome engine is quick and lightweight on my reasonably old gear. So for straight up A to B reading I favour this.
Yes, is an incredible alternative to open, create PDF files!!!
