Mozilla Firefox 19 enters Beta, brings along a native PDF viewer and ARMv6 support Written by Ron on January 12, 2013, 08:30AM
Mozilla has released Firefox 19 into Beta and the new version brings with it a native PDF viewer as well as other features. The built-in PDF viewer utilizes standard HTML5 APIs, which allows it to run on many browsers and platforms, including PCs, tablets, and smartphones.
“For a number of years there have been several plugins for viewing PDFs within Firefox. Many of these plugins come with proprietary closed source code that could potentially expose users to security vulnerabilities,” Mozilla explained. This eliminates the need to have a third-party plugin for a PDF viewer. Firefox 19 for Android, on the other hand, is optimized for ARMv6 support, which makes the browser available to 15 million more phones, especially those with minimum requirements of 600MHz, 512MB, and HVGA.
