The current release supports Internet Explorer 7, IE 8, Opera 9.62, Firefox 3.browsers on the Windows OS (XP, Vista and above) and Opera 9.62 and Firefox 3 on Linux .

Installation instruction, download a suitable plug-in for your browser from here. For example, download plug-in for Firefox.

1. Extract OpenXMLViewer to a temporary folder
2. Open ‘OpenXMLViewer_Win_Firefox.xpi’ with Firefox and install the plug-in.
3. Restart your browser and open the required word document using the browser to read.

PaperBus-free & fast web proxy solution for anonymous internet surfing

There are several free proxy solutions available for downloading ( we had covered few of them in the previous posts ), but from my personal experience most of them are very slow in my country. If you are looking for a free, fast and reliable proxy solution for anonymous surfing, Here is a new multi-platform application, PaperBus (ad-supported) which lets you surf anonymously and bypass internet filters. Paper bus (brought you by Open Terrace Ltd the same company that made commercial proxy service Freedur) is very easy to use. Simply install, and run. No registration required.
