While I think the feature as such (viewing the the PDF-file in the 
system's default viewer) is reasonable I'm with Tomek: Not another 
button, I love the user interface as clean as it is.

The feature is easy enough to set up as one of the typesetting tools: 
Use the command to run your PDF-viewer as the programme-name, and 
$basename.pdf as argument.
