firefox2-300x225Mozilla has recently released the final build of Firefox web browser, Firefox 19. Though this isn’t a revolutionary version there are few important changes implemented in this version.  A built-in PDF viewer is the most important one, for which users were waiting since long. Which means you no longer need to use third-party plugins for opening PDF files within your browser window. See the list below to know other important changes.
