    PDF links, downloaded instead of opened

    When I click on a PDF link on a webpage I get prompted to either open in Preview (default) or save to disk. But even when I choose open in Preview the PDF is still downloaded first.

    How can I change that?

    You need either

    1. The PDF plugin
    2. Adobe Reader (like the PDF plugin, only slower and buggier)
    3. Safari

    I didn't know Reader was buggy.

    Download it and it will install the plugin for Safari automatically.
