View, Open ePUB Files In Firefox

by Rohit Khurana on October 18, 2010


We are in a habit of downloading the pdf files to read them. This is generally practised because the browser does not support to read those files. Even if the books, articles or any other material which will be rarely needed have to be piled up in the system. It will be time consuming as well as bit cumbersome to manage. We are having the ePub files to resolve this problem. But all browsers does not support them. But now, Mozilla Firefox has a wonderful add-on which will support you to read the ePub (.epub) files. This Firefox add-on is known as EPUBReader.

EPUBReader is an add-on for Firefox 3.0 – 4.0b6. Install it and read the ebooks in the browser itself. As shown in the snapshot below, when you click on the Add to Firefox button, it will be added and placed in the top right corner.


Now, whenever you have to download any file, select the ePub format and download. The file will be saved in the EPUBReader. You can access the required file with the help of the EPUBReader icon on the browser. It will present you the ePub catalog as shown below.



All the files will be present here with the complete description. The add-on is very user friendly. All the features are available side by side. You can see the Metadata. Save the file in your system if required. Also, after use it can be deleted. All the three options can be seen along with the file as shown.


The file is represented as per the users’ convenience. You can scroll page wise or chapter wise. The best thing is that there is no right-left scroller. You can change the size of the window as you are comfortable and the text will be automatically adjustedwithin it. It also has the bookmark option. You can change the size of the text with the help of the symbol shown on the right bottom.

The add-on will be highly beneficial for the users who like to store a large number of ebooks. Since it is easily manageable and accessible, the user will prefer to read the files in the browser rather then downloading it and save it in the system. Also, it helps you to read and search for more files side by side. I would like to say that I really enjoyed using it and will suggest you to surely try it once.
