Description

Open with Google Docs Viewer is a Greasemonkey script that inserts an icon for viewing supported file types directly with Google Document Viewer.

Not only is viewing files in your browser far more secure than downloading and opening them locally, but it also saves time and doesn’t clutter up your hard-drive with unwanted files.

Supported File Formats:
DocumentsRTF, DOC, DOCX, ODT, SXW*, PDF(), XPS, PAGES, PS
PresentationsPPS, PPT, PPTX, ODP*, SXI*
SpreadsheetsXLS, XLSX, ODS*, SXC*
ImagesTIF, TIFF
DrawingsEPS, AI, PSD, DXF
OtherZIP, RAR, TTF
* Using Zoho Viewer.
