What is PDF?

Every so often when I am opening a web page the letters, "PDF" come up.
Could someone tell me what it is and why the device is used?

PDF stands for Portable Document Format.

It was developed by Adobe for displaying documents containing images and text in the original format and layout, whilst minimizing file size. It is commonly used throughout the web for downloads of manuals, datasheets and other documents.

They are typically of no harm to your computer, however, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view the files.
