SharePoint Document Viewer helps viewing documents directly in your browser. MS Word documents, web pages, PDFs, images, pages, etc. can be viewed directly within SharePoint document library.

Navigating the documents is easy. Popular document formats such as MS Office 2010 and previous versions, PDF, TXT and others are supported by the viewer. PDF book marks could be viewed in a tree structure and navigating to a specific page with a single click is possible. JPEG, GIF, PNG are image formats supported. Visio formats and XML formats are also compatible with the tool.
This tool is compatible with SharePoint 2007, WSS 3.0, SharePoint 2010, SharePoint Server 2010, MOSS 2007, as well as SharePoint Foundation 2010. The interface should be familiar to SharePoint users as the add-on uses the same. This tool is not just for anyone but the sophisticated community of SharePoint users. Viewing of documents and sharing is simple for the SharePoint users, which is a collaborative platform anyway. What need to be tested during trials is the kind of productivity gains and ease of use is obtained through this tool. For that, if you have a need, you should try it out in actual workflow.
