Rowan reported back in late June that (very) popular PDF Download 2.0 Firefox add-on had hit beta, well, now after almost a month, its ready for center stage.

I have been using a handy Firefox Add-on called PDF Download for the past few months. This add-on allows you to specify whether you want to view a PDF file inside your Firefox browser or if you want to download it to your desktop.
