Annoyed by PDFs that save and download instead of opening?
This extension forces PDFs to render inline instead of downloading (by overwriting the "Content-disposition: attachment" header).
This extension works using the webRequest API -- and it's a bit slower than the alternative extension. If you're using the Beta or Dev versions of Chrome, my alternative extension uses the Declarative Web Request API -- which is faster.
- Only rewrites content that's in a main window (main_frame)
- Rewrites all responses with "Content-type: application/pdf"
- Rewrites responses with "Content-type: application/octet-stream" with a filename=*.pdf
WARNING: This may have security risks by overriding the attachment header. Use at your own risk.
