Ah, so it is probably acroread that allowed you to view it in
iceweasel.  Judging from AdobeReader_ita-8.1.7-1.i386.deb it installs
the plugin under ~/.mozilla/plugins, which based on
webkit/plugins/npapi/plugin_list_posix.cc I would imagine that chromium
does look at.

When acroread is installed, does it should up in your about:plugins?

(By the way, thanks for the pointer to epdfview!  I had been waiting
to find something like that.)
