PDFzen is an online resource so there’s no software to install or configure. Just upload any PDF form and you can instantly type into it, highlight text, draw or sign the document and even add comments all right from your web browser.

It can even be used on your smartphone or tablet and there’s no sign up or registration required to get started.
