Google has recently released a new Google Chrome extension that lets you view Microsoft Office documents right in your browser. Just as is the case of PDF files.

Keep in mind that the extension is still in beta version, and will not work with the current stable release. The novelty called Chrome Office Viewer supports the following formats: doc, .Docx,. Xls,. Xlsx,. Ppt and. Pptx. Interestingly, now we can install the plug-in on your browser in beta, but it should be mentioned that we can experience some bugs when using the extension since it's still in beta.
