 Replying to [comment:27 skierpage]:
 > It appears Read can has code to display a file given a URL.  So instead
 of the "download in Browse-save in journal-switch to journal-start Read"
 dance, Browse could instead store the URL of the PDF you click on in the
 Journal, or even directly start the Read activity with the URL.  Working
 with URLs rather than files would be a big change, and touches on the
 discussion on the devel list around July 7th and in bug #6958 about
 seamless launching from URLs.

 It uses HTTP to download a PDF from peers in a shared session, which is
 not necessarily the best file transfer mechanism. Point taken though,
 we'll see what comes of #6958.
