Image from store Docs Online Viewer
Description from store Docs Online Viewer introduces a convenient way to view documents on the web. It uses third party online services like Google docs API (or other services when available) to open links with extension PDF, DOC, DOCX, XLS, PPT, RTF, ODT, ODS, ODP, CSV and many more file formats online in the browser itself without need for any third party software installed on your computer. This extension reduces the need for additional software required to open documents such as Acrobat reader plugin, Microsoft Office and so on. This is less resource intensive compared to using external software/plugins which are a bloat on your system and may cause browser / system crashes. It also reduces the risk of downloading malicious documents. Docs Online Viewer is lightweight and tightly packed so that it does not slow down your browser. Supported File Formats: DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, PPT, PPTX, PDF, PAGES, AI, PSD, TIFF, DXF, SVG, EPS, PS, TTF, XPS, RTF, ODT, SXW, SSV, SXC, ODS, SXI, ODP, WPD If there are any bugs or if there are any missing features, please report in the "SUPPORT" section. I will try fixing them. For more information, visit: http://dov.parishod.com/ Privacy Policy: https://dov.parishod.com/privacy/

Latest reviews

  • (2023-10-31) Nicole Ahmed: Lightweight extension that takes advantage of the google docs viewer to display office and other files in your browser without having to open up separate applications. Can take some time for the viewer to load and may need refreshing. didn't work with all the formats listed e.g. ODP. But was useful for rtf files where there are not many other options. Examined the traffic and doesn't seem to be anything dodgy being sent out. Needs access to all sites because of the links it creates so theoretically this could be a security concern. Hasn't been updated since 2021 but that's not so concerning as it works. This is only a viewer. For editing I would recommend Googles Office Editing for docs extension though this is much bigger.
  • (2023-08-03) Arkadiusz Stefański: Hi, not open .docx , i analize and any license problem. linux user, chromium. Nie otwiera docx, dostałem mailem a używam linuxa, chciałem otworzyć, podgląd niedostępny, analizowałem kod i dokopałem się że to problem z licencją.

  • (2021-08-13) david gunnells: Well designed extension and GUI. Works mostly as expected. IMO, it's missing three things: 1) none of the options save (open in new tab or file types) 2) it doesn't detect all the file types that the Google Docs/Drive Viewer can handle (e.g. javascript - .js) 3) it needs an option to turn off linking to the viewer as embedded

  • (2021-06-24) Yudhatama Indrawan: Great
  • (2021-06-05) Rezwan Haque: In the options page, save button do not work; therefore, can't change Options. could be more lightweight. should have some exception/whitelist. Update 1: Sometimes icon/logo disappears from the Search result.

  • (2021-08-13, v:8.1.3) david gunnells: Option for embedded=false

  • (2020-12-30, v:8.1.3) Manoj Phaneendra: Unable to open pdfs stored in Azure Blob Storage
    We have few files stored in Azure Blob Storage. We have apis exposed to return the url of the pdf file. This url generally is formed by path to storage and SAS token with time validity until which the user can view the file. Unfortunately these files which are SAS token appended are unable to open in docs viewer.
