With Chrome you can also open Office documents

Google Chrome is a browser that practically has it all. You can do many more things besides surfing the Internet, thanks to the large number of add-ons that offers, increasing the possibilities offered by the browser. You can open from PDF files to open files or MP3 music without an external program.

Chrome Office Viewer

But one of the few things that could not be done with Chrome was open Office files. Yet now be possible thanks to Chrome Office Viewer that lets you open Word, Excel and PowerPoint, with its different extensions .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .ppt and .pptx.

The only drawback that moment has Chrome Office Viewer is that it can be installed only on a chrome Beta version. If you have a final and stable version, you get a warning message that can not be used with your current browser version. Finally, mention that it is the same plug-in is a Beta version so there will be some mistakes, which we saw: some files were not opened and others were opened poorly.

I think with SkyDrive and its ability to open Office files online, is covered much of the expectations of many users that make use of such features. Anyway, Chrome adds a complement for all use and situation, which is also appreciated.
