Gmail gets the Google Docs PDF viewer

Google PDF Viewer
Google has long offered Gmail users the ability to open PDF attachments as HTML files without downloading the file and firing up Adobe Acrobat, Foxit or any other PDF viewer. But you lose a lot in the translation when you convert a PDF file to HTML.

Now Google has begun allowing users to open PDF files using the Google Docs PDF viewer. That means you can view PDFs sent to your email inbox without downloading them and without losing the formating, graphics, or other elements that make PDFs do darn fun to look at.
