This PDF support on Google Chrome is such a useful, yet underappreciated feature. It’s technically just a PDF viewer, but you can use it to separate certain pages from the rest of the document.

If you love to store PDF documents locally, don’t forget to compress them to reduce their size and save valuable disk space at no cost.
