Open PDF in SharePoint Browser by setting MIME
 

In case you save a pdf files in document Library and other user want to open to open,then SharePoint has not facility to open it in browser.When you click the link it asks to save in hard drive.  

By using PowerShell command we can easily add the PDF MIME type to the web application's AllowedInlineDownloadMimeTypes property

$webApp = Get-SPWebApplication("http://abhay-pc:4444")

$webApp.AllowedInlineDownloadedMimeTypes.Add("application/pdf")

$webApp.Update()

 

As soon you run the above code and open the pdf,its open in the existing browser
