PDF documents are probably the most used file on the web next to .jpg, .gif, or text. The only problem is whether or not the person has the latest download of the reader or their connection speed. I mean the worst part is waiting for a download to happen only to open the doc and find out it is not what you were looking for. The other side of this is that the file downloads quickly but the resolution is horrible and it makes the document look bad. Well not to fear Docstoc.com is here. This online site allows you to upload not only PDF documents but Excel, Word, and PowerPoint presentations as well to their site. Then they give you this nifty little widget that actually allows you to put your document live on your site. No downloading just a flash plugin that is already installed in most browsers. Tell me what you think. I am listening.
