Nitro PDF Software Announces Major November Milestones for PrimoPDF, the World's #1 Free PDF Creator

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - November 30, 2009) - Nitro PDF Software, the company that revolutionized the PDF software space with the introduction of the first truly compelling alternative to Adobe® Acrobat®, Nitro PDF Professional, today reaffirmed its position as the world's leading provider of PDF solutions, announcing PrimoPDF's ascent to the top of CNET's 'PDF Software' category, having amassed over 15 million downloads so far on Download.com alone.

The announcement follows the release of updated Enterprise and API versions of PrimoPDF, as well as a completely new website, marking yet another extraordinary year not only for PrimoPDF but for Nitro's entire product family. Last month, Nitro's PDF Download, the world's most popular PDF web-browser extension, also reached the 15-million-download mark at Mozilla's Firefox Add-ons website.

"The success Nitro has enjoyed this year can largely be attributed to our continuing commitment to creating PDF products that our users couldn't live without," said Nitro CEO, Sam Chandler. "Like all our free products, Primo is testament to that -- hugely popular because it does exactly what it claims to -- zero-cost, high-quality PDF creation."
