Is there any way to copy/paste from a PDF document in the Browser Widget?
I can copy to the clipboard using the keyBoard, but will there be a way, in the future to do this via a mouseclick?

From an ordinary webpage this is simple, see

From a PDF it is possible the same way (just select, without copy and paste) if you use pdfViewer, see

If you use the standard pdf plugin given by preview on Mac it is already possible, just copy and paste (text only, for images you have to work a little bit harder with the fullClipboardData) .
shiftLock happens
