I was wondering if anyone knows how can one read/open PDF files within Opera browser (the way it opens in IE).

I don't think you can.

And, besides, that's a user setting and nothing you can affect from the PDF provider's point of view. No PDFs (or other documents for that matter) open directly in IE on any of my machines.

When I'm in Opera (8.51) and click a link that
goes to a PDF file, the first time I do so my
jurassic era copy of Adobe Acrobat (5 era) opens and then the specific PDF file opens in the same tab where I started.

When I be done with the file, I just click the browser back button to the webpage where I first clicked the link. If I click another link to a PDF file, the file opens up without the Adobe intro box reappearing.

Then I guess that's possible ...
Regardless, you could never force it to do that in my Opera/IE, since I have turned that off in Acrobat itself :)

It's an Acrobat Reader setting, not a browser setting.

hum.. interesting... I am going to see if I can get some plugin to or something to do that, as it would be wonderful to be able to use opera voice feature on all pdf papers.

I have not see opera display a pdf inline (within the browser) since about Opera 5. I don't think it can do it.
