You convert your Word Documents into PDF (Portable Document Format) with the hopes of accessing it from different computers (school, library, cyber café… etc) without having to worry about compatibility issues, but what if the computer doesn’t have PDF Reader installed? Luckily, there are online PDF readers which come to the rescue without installing anything on the computer.
- Samurajdata is a light weight online PDF viewer which lets you quickly view PDF files either by pointing to a URL or by uploading it from your computer. No registration required, but interface is not so remarkable. Good for PDFs without many images because it doesn’t render images so perfectly.
- PDF Escape is a perfect online PDF Reader for most people. It renders both text and images perfectly, and gives you a regular PDF viewer like experience. If registered, you can gain access to certain features like storing your PDF and opening your recently viewed PDF.
