    OK, so neither the Adobe Reader 7.x or the Schubert PDF Broswer Plug-in seems to exist as a Universal binary (yet). Are there any other options that (1) will work on Intel and (2) provide better navigation that the basic Preview functionality?

    You should be able to view PDFs within Safari out of the box. If not, then you can restore this function by enabling PDFs as an image format in QuickTime preferences MIME settings.

    Thanks. ;)

    Yes, to be clear, it's not that I can't view PDFs at all in Safari; it's that I see multi-page PDFs as a single, continuous "web page". I'd like some kind of plug-in that allows me to jump to a particular page and that kind of thing.

    Right now, I only see two options:

    1) Save the PDFs and use Preview, or
    2) Switch browsers (Firefox automatically uses Preview).
