Is there any way, when using the Document Management System module, to allow the default browser behaviour treatment for PDFs eg. Viewing within the browser if that's what the user normally encounters/prefers?

I think if the user is expecting to quick view a PDF in the browser as they normally would, then the automatic download is a bit annoying.
