Search and Preview Documents Quickly Online (PDF, DOC, PPT)

DocuFarm is both the name of a search engine and browser extension that makes viewing documents online easy and quick.

First off, using the search engine, you can look for PDF, PPT, DOC, RTF, and PS files on the web. Only documents are searched by DocuFarm, not web pages.

An icon next to each search result tells you what type of document you are dealing with. The trick comes when you click on a search result; for example, instead of loading Acrobat for PDF files, DocuFarm processes the file for you and displays each page of the file as a thumbnail.

Not only is this a faster way of opening documents, but you can also quickly skim through the document. Of course, you will run into problems when dealing with longer documents.

The browser extension, which is compatible with Firefox and IE, lets you use DocuFarm anywhere on the web. After you install it, just right-click a document link and select "View on DocuFarm..." to preview the document.
