I personally think that embedding software in browsers is not that good
idea: default shortcut mix up for example, usually leading to confusion.
 Moreover, a crash in the embedded application usually results either in
the browser hanging, or in the whole flow looking "broken". Current
style seems much more on the "usability" line that gnome took up years
ago, but I might be proved wrong by a well designed pdf plugin.
