    Well, at least it's not actually using the Adobe PDF viewer, so it'll probably be more secure
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    PDFs are the thing I hate most about the internet.

    If they can integrate it well, and make them load quickly and smoothly, it would be a big plus for Chrome.
