Chrome PDF Viewer ToC focus problem

Hi All,

I am a little curious about a problem I am seeing with ToCs on Google
Chrome. The PDFs I am referring to here are written in Adobe Acrobat, when
activating any of the ToC links, the visual as well as the programmatic
focus moves to the target when using the Adobe Reader.

However, when viewing the same PDF on Chrome, the view scrolls upon
activation, but the programmatic focus stays on the ToC link. Also, the
focus shift for any custom reference links work fine.

I am a bit curious, if it is a viewer issue, or there is something the
writer can do at their end to make this better on Chrome?
