Can I force a PDF open in browser?

I'm wondering if its posable to force a PDF to open in a browser window and not in Reader.  It seams customers are clicking the links, files are being downloaded and the user is not realizing anything has happened.  Can I just force them to open in the browser, only downloading if they hit save?

I use (and work) the embed Tag:

<embed src="file.pdf#toolbar=0&navpanes=0&scrollbar=0" width="500" height="375"></embed>

The params after # are for Adobe reader only (i don't have time to test in others readers). Try it.
