I'm still trying to parse that first sentence.... Google doesn't
always allow retrieving the actual pdf, but I think Xiphos with
xulrunner would be able to display the normal web-based reader
already. Using the plugins in the widgets is not a straightforward
thing; I think it varies from one to the other, but I think it would
be difficult to get working on xulrunner.
