Firefox for desktop has been updated to v. 19.0 and got a built-in PDF viewer. Firefox for Android has been updated as well; it now comes with support for themes, among other things.

Mozilla this week announced that it updated its popular Firefox browser for Windows/Mac/Linux and for Android-powered mobile devices. Desktop users can now enjoy Firefox 19 on their Windows, Mac, or Linux-powered machines. This latest version comes with a built-in PDF viewer. You can read PDFs inside the browser, with no need for additional plugins. Mozilla explained that it included this new feature so that Firefox users could browse the web without interruption.

“Firefox for Windows, Mac and Linux introduces a built-in browser PDF viewer that allows you to read PDFs directly within the browser, making reading PDFs easier because you don’t have to download the content or read it in a plugin like Reader,” explained Mozilla. “For example, you can use the PDF viewer to check out a menu from your favorite restaurant, view and print concert tickets or read reports without having to interrupt your browsing experience with extra clicks or downloads.”

The latest Firefox for Windows release is available for download right here on FindMySoft.

Firefox for Android has also been updated this week. Mozilla’s mobile browser now comes with support for themes and support for more languages (mainly Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese). The updated Firefox for Android also lowers the CPU speed requirement from 800MHz to 600Mhz, thus making the mobile browser accessible to 15 million more phones.

“Firefox for Android is now available to more Android devices with ARMv6 processors, bringing a better Web experience to almost 15 million more phones. This includes popular phones like LG Optimus One, T-Mobile myTouch 3G slide, HTC Wildfire S and ZTE R750,” explained Mozilla.

Firefox for Android is available for download in Google’ Play Store here.
