Did you know that if you have a Gmail account (Google’s popular email service) you can view PDF files, Powerpoint files and TIFF files? For example, if someone sends you Powerpoint slides as an email attachment in your Gmail, you can view the slides without installing the Powerpoint viewer; OR, if someone sends you a PDF file (Adobe’s Portable Document Format) you can view the PDF file without installing a PDF viewer. The Tiff format is a format that is commonly used when sending faxes. The online Gmail viewer for these file formats is powered by Google Docs. You can read more about these features on the “Official Gmail Blog”. If you do not have a Gmail account I encourage you to sign up for an account [ HERE ] to take full advantage of Gmail and all of the services that Google has to offer.
