Google Documents, is a Google service that will help an individual to view their file saved in the system, in the browser online via Google Docs.
For instance, lets take MS word as an example. If you don’t have MS word installed in your system, then you will probably not be able to view the downloaded file in your system. Here is where Google offers you support.
When you just go to Google docs website , you can view the word document from there. Now that means, no need to purchase MS Office license and your system becomes more faster.
