As a webmaster working for many of the news portals and content sites I had to look for an easy to use online document viewer. The problem with most of the available document viewers is that they won't support all of the popularly used content formats or document types, one more problem that I noticed is that they are slow and unstable as they highly depend on the client which is the web browser making tough to operate.

I started to search for a web based document viewer that can be used to open document files in the multiple-formats. Which also reads document images, MS Office formats, Word Perfect, and more. After trying several software I narrowed down to AJAX Document Viewer which delivers integrated document viewing to a number of popular document management systems. It is fast, has High Performance, Fidelity and is very much stable.

Ajax Document Viewer can work as a Server Based Product and work for both Windows and Linux Environments.
