Pleasanton, CA (PRWEB) July 23, 2008
Nitro PDF Software, the company that revolutionized PDF software with its launch of the first true alternative to Adobe® Acrobat®, today announced the release of version 2.0 of PDF Download, the world's leading PDF extension for Mozilla Firefox. One of the top 10 most popular Firefox extensions of all time with almost 9 million downloads to date, PDF Download is also one of very few add-ons officially recommended by Mozilla. Furthermore, current growth rates indicate that total downloads will easily exceed 11 million by the end of the year.
PDF Download enables both Firefox and Flock browser users to gain full control over the viewing and handling of PDF files online, effectively eliminating the frustration often experienced when downloading and using PDFs on the web. With PDF Download, users can select how to view and manage PDFs - files can be downloaded automatically, opened within a PDF viewer, or quickly converted to HTML for viewing directly within the web browser. Moreover, the latest release introduces an innovative new feature: for the first time ever, Firefox and Flock users can easily convert web pages to high-quality PDF files at no cost, functionality that has long been a common request among existing and prospective users. The new feature accurately retains the page layout, images, font appearance, and active hyperlinks, enabling users to transform web pages into PDF files that are ideal for archiving, printing, emailing, and sharing.
"Since its inception, PDF Download has become one of those must-have add-ons for Firefox and Flock users when it comes to handling PDF files on the web," affirmed Sam Chandler, CEO at Nitro PDF Software. "The extension removes the headache users typically experience when viewing and using PDFs online and now that you can also quickly convert any web page into a high-quality PDF, it's safe to say our user base should continue to flourish." Chandler concluded that "PDF Download's popularity has grown, in large part, as a result of its inherent flexibility - the plug-in is now available for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms - not to mention our highly passionate user base."
PDF Download v2.0 is the latest release from Nitro's free PDF software suite which currently has a base of over 20 million users and comprises the world's #1 free PDF creator, PrimoPDF, the popular online PDF creation service, PrimoOnline, and the #1 free online PDF editor, PDF Hammer. PDF Download v2.0 is available exclusively for download from Download.com on July 21st, 2008 and from the PDF Download, Mozilla, and other software resource websites from July 22nd, 2008.
