Topic: InBrowser PDF reader under MACOSX

A slight problem that someone may be able to help me with.....we have set up a PDF Forms environment on a single laptop in MacOSX (apache server, php, perl, mysql) with a view to put forms data into databases as a demonstration machine...the problem is that the current version of Acrobat Reader does not open within the browser (opens standalone) on MacOSX and therefore does not send the Form responses through the browser.

The logical workaround is to access that Form/browser through OS9.2 (which is Adobe's current recommended workaround) but this doesn't help us because we cannot run the OSX server and OS9.2 on the same machine at the same time!!!!

Does anyone have a workaround or know of a PDF reader program that can open forms in the browser window in the MacOSX environment?
