[ale] chrome & PDF

I just now read this ( in my handy RSS feed in Kontact:)

An anonymous reader writes "Google's latest Chrome 6 Developer Update comes 
with a few subtle GUI changes, but there is also a major update under the 
hood. As its ties with Adobe quite apparently grow stronger, there is not 
just an integrated Flash player, but also a native PDF reader in the latest 
version of Chrome 6. Google says the native reader will allow users to 
interact with PDF files just like they do with regular HTML pages. The reader 
is included in Chrome versions (Chromium) 6.0.437.1 and higher, and you can 
use the feature after you have enabled it manually in the plug-ins menu. That 
is, of course, if you can keep Chrome 6 alive ? Windows users have reported 
frequent crashes, and Google has temporarily suspended the update progress to 
find out what is going on." The Register has some more details on the PDF 
plugin and a link to Google's blog post about it.
Read more of this story at Slashdot.


of course my version is currently 6.0.427.0 :(
