Topic: Fast web viewing of PDF files in the browser in the MAC

Dear list members,

I have a web application written in HTML and javascript that displays PDF files of photocopies of rare books in the frame of a window. These files are from 20 to 80 Mg. Everything works quick and fine for Windows users. The PDF books were all created with "enable for fast web viewing". Everything works fine for Windows users. My code checks what browser the user is using, and if its Netscape, I load the frame by changing its location property and if its not I use the "embed" statement of HTML. I do this because Internet Explorer would download the whole file if I changed the frames location property. Thus the user can start looking at the PDF file almost immediately.

But for Mac users no matter what browser they use, the whole PDF file is downloaded before they can access it which takes forever. Can anyone suggest what I need to do.

Many thanks,
