Please, don't advise flash to anyone. It's outdated, and is not gonna be
supported for a long time anymore. iOS never supported, and Android does
also not support since Jelly Bean I think.
I checked your solution, and on my 1920x1080 screen, it shows the pdf quite
small. I can zoom, but the bounding box does not get bigger, which means I
have scroll the page from left to right to view it. In a native solution it
would show the PDF as wide as my screen is, which makes it normally
I don't see what the problem is with showing a pdf in a pop up or new
tab/window, it should work just as any other. Can u perhaps show us a
simple code that does not work? (under 50 lines of code, if possible).
