    I did a little more experimenting. Iceweasel works as you described. Chrome, at least as now configured on my computers, does not.

    That is not how it seems to work with the Chrome browser, either on my wife's windows 7 or my Debian machine. Perhaps there is a setting somewhere to change it, but right now I get an immediate download when I click on the attachment. I then have to click on the little box at the bottom to see the file.

    When you click on the attachment, you should be given a choice by Adobe Acrobat to view the file or download the file. If you select view, Adobe Acrobat will open the file in your browser without saving it, which you can then save if you wish.

    What makes this site different from Facebook is the ability to post documents, especially large documents. One of the reasons is the ability to combine text and photos in a single document; another is to create an easy way for others to save articles without cutting and pasting. A stated goals of this site is to provide easy access to content for research purposes.

    I'm not sure there is a better way, but I'm not a fan of pdfs in web pages. They break up the flow of info and I usually end up with several copies of often cryptically named files (not this one) in a directory that takes several tries to find.
