Looking for a solution to print pdf files from the browser, I found 2 majors problems :
1) No background print process : revBrowserPrint systematicaly calls the dialog so you cannot preset pdf printing, no parameters can be called to avoid that.
2) Not reliable for flash content : doe not seem to print out flash content... which is a serious problem for a lot of sites.. and revBrowser is often crashed on intensive flash based sites when revBrowserPrint is called.
3) what you see is not always what you get : Sometimes prints the whole html page, good, but other times only the visible portion of the browser, like a revBrowserSnapshot. and that is no good! I did not quite get the rationale of it (when exacly and why..). it seems it may be linked with 2) maybe trying to offer an alternate view when not able to print the flash content!?
