I've also tested the plugin in Evince's source and it works great although it still lacks important features such as search and copy&paste, but it provides the easiest solution to see PDF files in-browser in Epiphany. I'd love to see it included in the binary packages. Is it being considered? Has a decision been taken?

Thanks in advance.
