Google Docs, the online office suite from the search giant Google, now has some limited but still useful support for PDF files, as announced on the Google Docs blog “…I’m very pleased to confirm that you can now upload, preview and share PDFs in Google Docs. (While you can’t edit them yet, you can copy & paste text.) We eagerly await your feedback on this highly requested feature. “
People using the service now can upload and view documents encoded with the widely used and now standardized Portable Document Format initially created by Adobe Systems. People also can transfer PDFs stored on the Web. To get started, click the Upload button in the Docs home toolbar, select a PDF file from your computer and off you go!.
