Nerdy Post: PDF Revolution

Google announced today something that I'll love. You will now be able to view PDF files from a Google search right in your browser without having to download it and read it with some PDF viewer. (If you understand that, you're happy right now. If you don't, move along.) Take a look for yourself which is a Google search for an IRS form.

Awesome. Why didn't they do that years ago?

More Google nerdiness for you: I noticed that you can play an audio file directly from Gmail now. Click the "play" option and a little window pops up. Neat for me, since my bros are always sending me illegally downloaded music.

They've had 'View as HTML' for years.

This is better than view as HTML, imho. Agree that this should have been an option years ago.
