PDF files should automatically open in your browser when you have installed Acrobat Reader 5.5 or later. It does for me for both in Mozilla Firebird and Internet Explorer.

They dont exactly open in a browser, rather they spawn an Adobe Window. If the user does not have Adobe, they wont be able to read the document. Browser's dont have a built in ability to read PDF's.

 

Or at least IE doenst, I dont really know aobut the other ones.
