Convert DJVU to PDF online, for free.
DjVu, pronounced déjà vu, is a file type that offers strong compression for high-resolution images. While similar to TIFF and PDF file types, DjVu offers much stronger compression than either of those. The most common use of DJVU files is to store scanned documents, which makes it more of a document file type than an image file. DjVu has the advantage of compressing files without sacrificing quality. However, the disadvantage is that special software is required to open DjVu.
A special software program is required to open a DjVu file. You must download this software to your computer, but fortunately, it’s free. Download the DjVu Browser Plug-in, which will enable you to open the files using any modern web browser. Often, DjVu files are converted to PDF, which is more familiar to most users.
For a list of programs that open DjVu files, visit DjVu.org. In addition, several programs are available for converting DjVu files. Cross-platform converters include DjVu to PDF. In addition, a page-specific converter is available that allows you to set the level of quality and compression. The name of this program is DjVu Converter.

The Portable Document Format (PDF) is a universal file format that comprises characteristics of both text documents and graphic images which makes it one of the most commonly used file types today. The reason PDF is so widely popular is that it can preserve original document formatting. PDF files always look identical on any device or operating system.
Most people head right to Adobe Acrobat Reader when they need to open a PDF. Adobe created the PDF standard and its program is certainly the most popular free PDF reader out there. It's completely fine to use, but I find it to be a somewhat bloated program with lots of features that you may never need or want to use.
Most web browsers, like both Chrome and Firefox, can open PDFs themselves. You may or may not need an add-on or extension to do it, but it's pretty handy to have one open automatically when you click a PDF link online. I highly recommend SumatraPDF or MuPDF if you're after something a bit more. Both are free.
