    Question Open .pdf's in Safari
    Once in a rare while there's a feature I liked better in the other world. When using IE .pdf files are opened in the browser like another page. In Safari they are downloaded as a file, an icon place on the desktop, and then it's opened in in Preview. Is there a way to have Safari open .pdf's like IE?

    Acrobat Reader 7.0 also does what you want.

    Sorry, too lazy to provide you a link, Google is your friend

    Oh and I should also mention that this functionality will be built into Safari 2.0
