The formerly closed-source PDF code in Google Chrome is now officially the PDFium open source project, hosted on https://pdfium.googlesource.com.

By open-sourcing the Foxit’s PDF technology, the chromium team gives to developers a robust and reliable PDF library to view, search, print, and form fill PDF files. Therefore, if your next project is under the "New BSD License", I cannot recommend enough you go learn how simple it is to build¹ PDFium and see how Chrome uses² it internally.
