You can already save files as PDF on Google Docs, so why not offer the ability to store them too?  The viewer already offers most of the useful functionality Acrobat gives us -- links to chapters, zooming, scrolling, full screen mode etc.

    Even better: they can use it to view pdf-files (and word doc converted to pdf first) in gmail, would be great.

    Another way of embedding pdf pages into a web page is to use something like FlexPaper which is open source, that way everybody can read your docs
