View and share documents online

Need a quick way to share documents online? Check out Zoho Viewer - you just select a file from your computer and specify the amount of time you'd like the file to be available. I tried it with a Microsoft Word document as well as an Adobe PDF document. Once the file is uploaded, just provide the URL to anyone who needs to view it. No sign up is required. I think this would be great for those documents too big for email! If you want to delete the file, you have to email the Zoho folks - this will probably change once this product gets out of beta.

Zoho has a suite of other useful products - check out Zoho Meeting. Have one-on-one meetings online ... at no charge.

Also, try Zoho Docs. Create a doc on your desktop and then save it in a Zoho folder so you can work on it at home or anywhere you can access the Internet. Share the file or files with others by providing their email addresses and access permission (read only or read/write).
