Death To Acrobat Reader
Ideally, PDF would be a browser-native format that wouldn't require plugins or external programs to view them.

Apparently other services offer similar functionality, like PDFMeNot.
Sadly, though, if you try to print the embedded document, it still appears to open your default PDF reader, but it's a step in the right direction.
