That's true too; it would be great to someday have undo in the 
textbox. And maybe even commands! :)

Maybe instead of my suggestion there could be a little button on the 
Find/Replace box that says Undo Last Replace?

2. PDF

Webkit already gives you PDF viewing for free, if you have Schubert's 
PDF Plugin (doesn't everyone?) For instance, you can enter in the url 
of a PDF file in TM's web preview and view PDFs right now. I just 
need a way to tell TM to show a PDF in the web preview.
