I prefer HTML for online viewing and PDF for offline.

BTW, you might consider a trick:  look up the PDF on google, use the  
HTML view.  This is generally poor for documents with significant  
graphics, but works reasonably well for most Haskell papers (modulo  
math I usually can't figure out anyway, lacking the background many  
Haskellers have in set theory / rings / groups/semigroups etc.).
