Anyone who's ever had to fill in a static PDF form will know what a nightmare it can be. Either you've got to take several steps to convert the PDF into something you can type on, or worse, dust off your printer (remember those?). Thankfully, Adobe and Google have now teamed up to create a much simpler solution to streamline the way we work with PDFs. 

Adobe has launched a series of .new browser shortcuts, including PDF.new, which can immediately convert word docs into PDFs, and Sign.new, which will allow you to add text boxes to a static PDF. (Check out the best Photoshop shortcuts for more quick Adobe actions.)
