How to make file URLs open in browser instead of downloading?

I'm using direct file URLs to link to files in Canvas (along the lines of ), but the browser then automatically tries to download the file instead of just opening it (most of my files are PDFs) or previewing it.  Is there a way to generate a link which will open / preview instead of downloading?
