I know this is a bit of a tangent, but I'll mention it because I think
it's so useful. There is a Firefox plug-in named "PDF Download" which
gives you the choice on each PDF file accessed to download it or view
it in-browsers (assuming the Adobe Reader / Acrobat plug-in is
installed). It can also perform an HTML conversion for in-browser
viewing if you don't have the plug-in. Most of the time, I don't want
to view PDFs in the browser, but I also don't want to mess with the
system-level installation of the PDF plug-in.

You can find it via the Firefox Extensions download service.
