Do you have Microsoft Office(doc, docx, ppt, pptx, pps, xls, xlsx), PDF(pdf, ps), Open Office(odt, odp, sxw, sxi, etc), or Text(txt, rtf) documents that you want to open online? Suppose you receive an email with any one of the above mentioned documents, what will you do?

View Docs Online is a free service that lets you open almost any type of popular documents online. Instead of downloading a client that can open such document, you can simply enter the URL of the document and this service will open it instantly.

Here is how it works, you can either upload a file from your computer or simply enter the URL of the Document, and click View Document.

As an example, I created a test Microsoft Word 2007 and PDF document and uploaded it to the service. The results were impressive.

You can also share, embed, or save the document. Any document can also be exported to PDF format.
