Default Blackberry Browser PDF support

Please Login to Remove!

I'm trying to figure out how I can open a pdf on the blackberry from the browser by clicking on a link. Right now with the 8830 (verizon os v 4.2) I can open pdfs from email, but the browser gives an error. I see that there are 3rd party pdf packages but they all seem to be focused on improving email attachment viewing. Is there any solution to viewing pdfs from the browser?

(So far the best i've found is to get opera mini, which lets me save the pdf and then i can open it with a 3rd party viewer)

I don't know of a way to open the PDF from the browser or download it from the browser, as a matter of fact, I was not aware that OM would download it either.
