    I stumbled upon a PDF viewer plugin for FireFox 3 today that allows you to browse PDF files inside the browser window.

    Link

    I decided to share the wealth ... seems to work very well so far.

    Still a few issues but the plug in is new and still being updated.

    Yea it hooks into the PDF core that Safari uses. When I meant issues I was mainly referring to cosmetic. For instance you need to goto File-Save page in order to save the pdf (Should also be able to right click).

    Author is working on this and more features. Regardless I'm happy ... PDF viewing was the only thing I hated about FF2.

    Awesome find. PDF viewing was one of the last things keeping me using Safari as my full time browswer. FF3 might now be my first browser of choice.

    SO happy to have this!

    Bummer though first pdf I viewed displayed HUGE and I had to :apple:- a bunch of times to shrink it down. Wish there were preferences where I could specify to shrink to the width of firefox.
