I am using Chromium 10.0.630.0 (70615). When I go to my web site and click on any of the pdf files on my playlists page, I am promted to download the file. I want to view the file within my browser and not download it. Is this possible?

Is there a way to install Google Chrome instead? What are my options? I can't use Firefox because I use Google Drive and sometimes while in Firefox, a notice comes up telling me to use Chrome instead for full functionality.

Yes. Long story short- you need libpdf.so from the Chrome pkg. Similar instructs on ChromeStory.com..
