I use okular and love it. I use it for all PDF viewing except within 
firefox. It is super fast. A real piece of art.

For browsing, though, I really want my PDF's to appear in a tab under 
FireFox. I do not want to have to see it pop up with a "Downloading... " 
followed by an other application opening it in a different window. If 
Okular had the ability to do this in a firefox plugin I would use it in 
a heartbeat. However, that is not the case so I am still looking for a 
way to make this work under Karmic (KDE 4.3.1) beta.

BTW, I do have acroread installed. I am looking for the plugin. That is 
the package I can't seem to find anywhere.
