How does it compare to

Mozilla's PDF.js https://mozilla.github.io/pdf.js/

or

Parallax's jsPDF https://parall.ax/products/jspdf




PDF.js is a Portable Document Format (PDF) viewer.

jsPDF prints using:

    var doc = new jsPDF();
    doc.setFontSize(40);
    doc.text(35, 25, "Paranyan loves jsPDF");
    doc.addImage(imgData, 'JPEG', 15, 40, 180, 160);
Pdfmake on the other hand:

   var dd = {
	content: [
		'First paragraph',
		'Another paragraph, this time a little bit longer to make sure, this line will be divided into at least two lines'
	]
   }


jsPDF doesn't trim each line like Pdfmake does. Pdfmake however supports new pages, witch jsPDF doesn't. Would be cool if Pdfmake didn't trim the lines!


jsPDF has a method called `addPage()` which adds a new page


Well, I have used PDF.js and it is great. I think it also has printable option.
