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.).
