I've been asked to add a PDF viewer several times in the past, and though it's basically not too difficult with libraries like poppler or MuPDF, the common issue with all of them is that they have many library-dependencies. Now I found a nice Mozilla pet-project (PDF.js) which allows me to do it with QtWebKit smile!

This is the outcome from my tests:


(It's exactly what's available on their demo-page, just integrated into QMC2's source tree.)

It's a bit slow at the moment and has some obvious bugs (mostly known to the developers), however, it's still already doing a nice job and I think it's probably the best alternative I have! What do you think?
