Calibre Server view Book in Browser

Hi,

First of all, calibre is awesome but a little thing is bothering me.

When I access my calibre DB via chrome und press the GET button, the book will be downloaded to my PC. Is there a possibility to change this behaviour? I would like to open the book directly in the browser?

Regards

There is the MagicScroll ebook reader plugin.

Integrating a javascript viewer into the content server is on my todo list.

What is bugging me is that I can find no information on the content server for users - other than a feature statement that there is one.

What am I missing?

Not much
Documentation is thin.

The main purpose of the Content server is to allow remote (not on the host) to browse the Library contents and GET the book for local reading on the preferred viewer.

Why use a browser to view a book? Calibre includes a Viewer for local viewing.
