I still don't know what the "true" answer to my question is, but since this answer gave the most explanation, I'm choosing this one.

But why is a PDF reader safer than the browser plugin? Isn't the PDF reader running with higher trust settings than the browser plugin, and therefore, an exploit could do just as much or more harm?

Sorry, I wasn't specific enough: I meant saving it to the harddisk and opening it with some PDF reader (Foxit Reader, Sumatra PDF, Acrobat Reader), not the browser or browser plugin, i.e. not from the browser cache.
