    They finally retire 3.6, I don't know how my institute still uses it…, it makes me very slow on many pages.

    Let's see… Let's see….

    A PDF reader itself, that sounds to me like that time they sued Microsoft for including a lot of software in their OS.

    This will not be problematic for the people of Firefox, and most importantly, will this not mean more consumption of unnecessary memory ?, because I imagine that the reader will come loaded through Addons….

    correct me if I'm wrong

      It can, but more serious is that there are still people who use the old Internet Explorer. I suppose that those who are involved in computer science like to update their favorite programs, but others do not care a bit, haha.

    I have tried the addon in Firefox 11 and it is painful.
    No point of comparison with Chromium's built-in PDF reader.
