Other supported filetypes that can be viewed using Google Docs include: Microsoft Office 2010 documents (.DOCX, .XLSX etc…), Adobe Illustrator documents (.AI), AutoCAD (.DXF) and font files (.TTF).
The move makes Google Docs more of a universal file viewer than a simple set of web apps with bundled storage.
In other Google-related news Gmail has recently been updated to enable Chrome’s in-built PDF viewer by default. The viewer was added a while back, and out-performs Google’s own Docs viewer so much that Gmail has made the jump. Chrome’s plugin-less PDF viewer can be enabled in Chrome by visiting about:plugins within the browser.
