Microsoft recently revamped its Docs.com web app, making it more robust for viewing Office documents. But you don’t need something from a giant like Microsoft to be efficient enough to have better features. In fact, it is often less known services which end up being more feature rich than big guns. DocsPal is a free online converter and viewer which supports dozens of file formats, ranging from MS Office and OpenOffice files to e-book, audio, video, image and archive formats.
