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
viewtopic.php?p=174936#p174936

From a PDF it is possible the same way (just select, without copy and paste) if you use pdfViewer, see
viewtopic.php?p=173724#p173724

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) .
