Over the last few days, Google Docs has added viewing support for 12 more file formats as detailed below.
- Microsoft Excel (.XLS and .XLSX)
- Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 / 2010 (.PPTX)
- Apple Pages (.PAGES)
- Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
- Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
- Autodesk AutoCad (.DXF)
- Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG)
- PostScript (.EPS, .PS)
- TrueType (.TTF)
- XML Paper Specification (.XPS)
So, what does this mean for you, the user. Well simply put, it means that you no longer have to open up a seperate application to view any of the above types of files. This has the knock on effect of speeding up viewing times for those file types.
