- Safari (Tiger version, maybe Panther as well, I don't remember) is  
already displaying PDF files.

- Adobe Reader installs a PDF Browser plugin (sadly, without telling  
or asking the user) upon installation.

- There is also the PDF Browser Plugin from <http://www.schubert- 

Or are you speaking of plugins allowing to view a page including PDF  
file "fragments" among other HTML "elements", as opposed to plugins  
allowing browsers to view PDF files in separate windows or tabs? I've  
never tried that AFAIR with the above plugins.
