Sometimes, when you want to open your PDF or Word documents at others’ computer but unfortunately the comuter doesn’t have such application to open them (although this is very rare case).
So, what you going to do? If your document is PDF format, you may download Foxit Reader to open it. But if the document is Word format, how you are going to open it? Download the OpenOffice and install at that computer? It is impossible for us to download the whole application for just want to open a file right?
So, maybe you can try the online File Viewer for PDF, Word and PosiScript service. You may need to upload the documents from your local drive, but i am not sure about the maxuimum file size allowed. As you can see from the screenshot, there are some control buttons on the left hand side of the documents.
This Online File Viewer actually convert the PDF and PostScript documents into image and display to the users. These documents are keep in the server and will be deleted 3 days after the last view.
