    With Konqueror, I use Open in New Tab and it converts the document to PDF format. Then I save it, changing the .asp to .pdf.

    Opening in a new tab like you are suggesting did not work for me. However, I found a way to open the bank statements with Okular:
    1) I downloaded the .asp file (eStatement) from my online bank account to my Downloads folder using the "Save Link As..." option;
    2) Using Dolphin I changed the .asp extension to .pdf;
    3) Double-clicking on the file opens up Okular and I can see my bank statement!

    With Firefox and Windows 7 it is less convoluted. All I do is click on the .asp file, Adobe Reader opens in a new tab and shows the bank statement. Doing this with openSUSE launches Okular but the bank statement is blank...

    If I install Chrome outside of YaST, will I then be responsible for
    monitoring when a new version comes out?

    Is it possible to add the Google repository to YaST such that --I'm
    hoping!-- it will monitor when a new version of Chrome is available and
    prompt me to install it? How?

    I'm getting so confused about all this Linux software, some of it in
    official openSUSE repositories and some not... I don't quite
    understand the repercussions/mechanics of installing software that is
    not in official repositories or available via YaST!

    You can install this repository into your yast2:
    http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/rpm/stable/i386
    (for the 32 bit, of course).

    Every time when a new version of chrome is placed there, you'll get the corresponding notice from apper to install it, so you'll have the latest version all the time.
    I also got installed chromium too, I can't confirm if every plugin I have installed on chrome works exactly the same with chromium too, but I'd expect it would (I had not installed them on chromium, though ... only adblock plus which works the same).

    Ah.

    Makes sense.

    Somehow banks use strange things. I have to import "calc" sheets from
    some sites. On some they are excel files; on some they are .csv files;
    on some they are plain html with tables! All with the wrong extension.

    However, fortunately LibreOffice opens all of them happily enough.

    So yours is simply a PDF file with the wrong extension.

    The command "file somename.asp" should be able to verify this.
