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).

There is no problem getting it to appear as a pop-up or in a new tab. The problem is that you have no idea exactly how the browser IS displaying it to a user.

I quite agree that flash now needs replacing but 5 years ago it was a workable solution. Replacing that with another viewer would be nice nowadays,but there is nothing suitable? The point here was to allow the pdf to be wrapped with other links, and managing selection of things such as filtering terms for a report which is then output as a pdf makes sense. The report can also be printed if required, something which is not practical directly from an html page.
