View in-browser PDFs in Google Chrome
Authored by: Typhoon14 on Sep 30, '10 08:39:55AM

FYI, for anyone who isn't clear on the difference, what the Google Docs viewer does is to redirect any PDF you try to access to the google docs site, where it is loaded in the google docs web-based PDF viewer.

Now, this is what I used to use, but I found that it seems to have trouble with a lot of websites, and would usually fail entirely on larger PDFs not to mention generally being a lot slower to load then the built-in PDF viewer. Your mileage may vary, of course.
