Google Doc Viewer

Google Docs has the functionality to render PDF/PPT documents into HTML webpages on the fly. If you have attachments in GMail, you might have seen this already. Now, Google has opened this for any document on the web.

Just add your document URL after "http://docs.google.com/viewer?url=",
Having http://, www prefixes before the URL doesn't hurt.

The Greasemonkey addon for Firefox & its equivalents for other browsers go one step ahead. This script modifies each document link automatically with the viewer prefix.
