http://www.liberiangeek.net – It is usually not the best thing to always download files such as PDFs, PowerPoint Presentations or Word Documents unto your computer before opening and reading it. How about being able to preview the document into your browser before actually downloading. This can save you time and helps keep your computer clean of old files.   With Google Chrome and the extension called Docs PDF/PowerPoint Viewer, you can preview all PDF files and other office documents in your browser before you download the file.  Previewing documents before downloading allows you to download only what’s important.   1) To install Docs PDF/PowerPoint Viewer, click on the wrench to the right and select Extensions.       2) Now type Google Docs PDF in the search box. Then select the program from the list.     3) Next click the Install button to install the program.     4) Click Install again.       5) Now try opening up a PDF or office document online. This time instead of downloading it, Docs viewer will automatically open it online.     This is another wonderful way of getting eliminating multiple files download on your computer.   Thanks for reading.
