Firefox for Android gets all new inbuilt PDF viewer

New Delhi, Feb 20: An upgraded version of Firefox web browser has been released for Android devices, which brings the much needed PDF reader application to the browser itself. What it means that users no longer need third party PDF readers like Adobe Acrobat, rather they can open PDF files right on the new Firefox 19 browser.
To make the browser more eye friendly, users will now be able to add themes to the browser in order to personalise their browsing experience. Themes will be available from the Mozilla store.
Besides, Firefox 19 has much lower CPU requirements than its predecessors so devices with slower processor (ranging from 600 MHz and above) will be able to download and use the application.
Earlier Firefox had adopted a new JavaScript compiler, IonMonkey, which allows the browser to process pages faster than before and return results in a shorter time.
Firefox 19 Android browser also comes with the phishing protection feature. The new phishing and malware feature protects users from malicious websites. Firefox for Android warns users when they encounter websites that may be used for malware or phishing to protect users from malicious websites.
The latest Firefox version is compatible with devices running Android version 2.2 and above. It is advised to the users that they connect to a high speed internet source such as a WiFi or 3G to download this browser as it has a over 17 MB installation file and can take a while to get downloaded using regular GPRS connection.
