View PostScript files in your browser Apps
As mentioned in a previous Pick of the Week, the PDF Browser Plugin from Schubert it is an indispensable tool for viewing PDF files you come across while surfing the 'net. If you'd like to extend the plugin's usefulness, though, grab a copy of ESP Ghostscript from the Gimp-Print project, which will let you view PostScript files too. After you've run the installer, restart your Web browser and try viewing a PostScript file (how about this one?).

You might not need to install it under Panther if you installed the GIMP Print Drivers.

[robg adds: As noted above, this just works in 10.3 if you installed the GIMP Print drivers; no need for a separate ESP Ghostscript install.]

And no need vor GIMP print drivers either. Just 10.3 or ghostscript is required, as it says here http://www.schubert-it.com/pluginpdf/

Does anyone else get a "OS Error -43" when trying this on .ps files? Works great on .pdf files ...
