Opening PDFs

Does anyone know of a best practice or have thoughts on opening PDFs from
a hyperlink? There seem to be 2 major methods for opening PDFs:

1) User clicks on hyperlink, PDF automatically opens in new browser
window, via Plugin. Ref:

2) User clicks on hyperlink, browser dialog asks user whether they want to
'open', 'save', or 'cancel' the action.

importantly is the interaction design of the panel itself. I found it

Time Entry

I've scoured the pattern libraries for various methods of entering
