"The Embedded Viewer API lets you embed book content from Google Book Search directly in your web pages with JavaScript."

I want to view my own pdfs on my site. Not the ones on google.

Forgive me. When I initially read the post I thought you wanted to be able to publish something as with scribd and embed it on your website, but something non-flash based. I donít know of any good free implementations for pdf viewing, as its generally used to restrict what the end-user can do with a normal hyperlink to a pdf.

I did find one, but it looks far from polished.

Yea, the link you provided only converts the pdf to images, its pretty close! If only I could select the text.... Its still not really a online viewer though.
Thanks
