Adobe Acrobat Timeline

On June 15th, we celebrated the 18th birthdays of Adobe Acrobat and PDF, technology innovations that fundamentally changed electronic communication and impacted computer users worldwide. Today, Adobe PDF is a ubiquitous, recognized standard for moving information, images, video and audio between computers, improving business processes and enhancing user experiences.

Turning 18 is a significant milestone. Just for fun, we’ve compiled a timeline from 1993 to today of some of the important cultural and technology milestones we encountered while Acrobat and PDF were growing up and changing how we communicate. There’s also an official Adobe PDF timeline here.
