Well, I have never used Chrome enough to use it's PDF reader.

I am very conservative when it comes to browser UI, the more
it is like the Mozilla (not FF) Modern theme circa 1.0, the
happier I am, so Chrome is right out, and SeaMonkey is in ;-)

But FF2-4, IE6-9, Moz1-SM2.0 on Linux and Windows
have all given me problems when running PDFs in the
browser. Others my be luckier.
