Nitro PDF Software Partners With Vuzit to Deliver New Release of PDF Download, the World's Most Popular PDF Web Browser Extension

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2009) - Nitro PDF Software, the company that revolutionized the PDF software space with the introduction of the first true alternative to Adobe® Acrobat®, Nitro PDF Professional, today announced the release of Version 3 of its highly-popular PDF browser extension, PDF Download. One of the most popular Firefox add-ons of all time, PDF Download is the leading tool for handling, creating, and viewing web-based PDF files and is enjoyed by millions of users every day. The browser add-on removes the headaches users typically experience when they encounter PDF files online, reducing browser crashes, speeding up the display of a PDF's content, and letting users convert any (unsecured) web page into a high-quality PDF file, perfect for archiving, printing and sharing.

Leveraging the Vuzit® DocuPub® Platform, the new version now offers users the ability to quickly view PDF files online, directly within the web browser, without the need for a dedicated PDF viewer. The Vuzit DocuPub Platform is a software-as-a-service offering for viewing, controlling, and tracking documents online, designed for integration into web applications such as PDF Download. The latest release also comprises tools to enable/disable PDF Download from the Status bar as well as the ability to exclude certain sites and to detect PDF files based on name or MIME type.

"The combination of PDF Download and Vuzit's online document viewer increases productivity by making it faster and easier to view PDFs online," said Cristina Martin Greysman, EVP of Business Development at Vuzit. "I personally use the 'View Online' feature in PDF Download daily and it's definitely made me more productive because I can preview a PDF before downloading it."

"We're thrilled to be partnering with innovators like Vuzit to offer a more streamlined online PDF viewing solution for our users," said Nitro's SVP of Sales and Marketing, Gina O'Reilly. "This release removes the need to revert to a desktop PDF viewer every time you encounter a PDF file on the web. As always, we've listened to the requests of our users and we're delighted the new version now provides a faster, more straightforward process for viewing and managing PDF files, in-browser, than ever before. Best of all, it's still completely free."

The new version is available for immediate download at:
