EPUBReader

Works on Windows, not linux Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I've tried to get this running on to different linux machines and completely failed. Works fine on Windows.

The epub files are downloaded into the profile outside of the Cache directory, so profiles are going to get huge, particularly with larger epubs such as some of the ones we generate (See http://www.nzetc.org/downloads/Cyc03Cycl.epub).

The plugin also gets the mime-types wrong sometimes, displaying the pages as HTML rather than XHTML (which is standard for epubs). I suspect that this is because the plugin doesn't communicate the mime-type to the renderer, which just defaults to inferring a mime type from the file extension.

Clicking on links in the body of texts leaves the user browsing a framed web. exteneral links should be full-screen (or open in a seperate window/tab)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.5).
