Modify Content-Type - Chrome Web Store
Item media 1 screenshot


Change the response content type to force documents to open in or outside the browser window or in a special view mode (PDF, XML...)

This extension is in beta state, please send feedback on your experiences and wishes! 'Modify Content-Type' allows manipulation of the Content-Type and Content-Disposition HTTP header fields of incoming documents. This may be helpful if you like to force the browser to either show a document inside the browser window or to offer it as a download. It also can be used to override unknown mime types sent by misconfigured servers. Just replace them by f.e. 'application/pdf' or 'application/xml' and Chrome will know how to show the document. Permissions: - 'Access your data on all websites': required to get access to the http headers of requested documents. Updates: - 0.2 -- added support for multiple rules per URL

I had hopes it worked for me but I tried multiples cases and it didn't

Works. Just be sure you know you regexes, and everything that needs to be escaped (like '+'), or the rule won't match.

Works as expected.
