Mozilla To Add HTML5 PDF Viewer To Firefox

With all the focus on HTML5 potentially threatening Flash's dominance of online video and rich media, Adobe may soon start to feel squeezed on another front. Mozilla has announced it is nearing completion of a new feature that will add PDF rendering to Firefox through the use of HTML5 and JavaScript, potentially eliminating the need for users to make use Adobe's PDF plugin.

This would make Firefox the second browser - along with Chrome - to offer in-browser PDF rendering. According to Andreas Gal, a Mozilla researcher, Mozilla's HTML5 based PDF reader may be included in Firefox in as little as three months.
