Fast viewers for PDF and Word, why?

The PDF viewer built into Firefox 20 is really fast compared to Adobe Reader. Anybody have theories why? I read that it is implemented in Javascript, so the speed is unexpected.

Similar is true of the built-in Word viewer, although I have less experience with it.
