I don't know if you all already have found this, but I am loving this plugin. It allows you to view PDFs in the browser rather than downloading them and viewing them in something else....



<a href="http://www.schubert-it.com/download/"; target="_blank">Here is where to get it</a>.

just go to the PDF download and follow the instructions for installing it. Its a great little plugin....Hope you all enjoy.

    What browser are you talking about because Internet Explorer has done this for a while.

    Hmmm, I wonder if I can copy that plugin over to Safari?

    All your plug-ins reside in a universal Internet Plug-ins folder. It works just fine with Safari.

    As frawgz said, you put it in the /Library/Internet Plug ins;/ folder and it works in safari. It's a nice little plug in that should be included with the next version of safari in case people haven't already installed it.

    I think that Acrobat 6.0 will have a Mac OS X compatible browser plug in.

    I don't know if IE has always had it. But it works with all browsers once installed in the internet plugins folder. I am absolutely converted on this great little plugin. So, this was for those that didn't already have it, and wanted the functionality it added.





    end of line....

    Do you have a URL to a site where there is a PDF that works in IE?

    I generally prefer downloading them, actually; perhaps because I generally download screenplays in PDF format and want them saved on my hard drive.
