Microsoft Office Web Apps Browser Plugin For Firefox

As you all know, Microsoft Office Web Apps is a ‘web version’ of Microsoft Office suite, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. With Web Apps, you can create and edit documents online, access them directly from anywhere within a browser, share and collaborate with other users online. The Office Web Apps Browser Plug-in allows you open documents directly from Firefox into desktop office application.

This plug-in is destined for Office 2007 and 2003 users (Microsoft Office 2010 users don’t need this plugin). As I said above, with this plug-in you can open any office file (Word, Excel, Power Point, and One Note) directly into appropriate desktop Office app.

For example, when you clicking ‘Open in Word’ option from the Office Web App, the document will open in Word 2003 or Word 2007 (also in Word 2010). When the document is saved in Word, it is saved back at the web location where it was opened.

Web Apps Browser Plug-in can be downloaded from Microsoft website. After downloading the exe file, install it and restart your computer. It supports Firefox 3.5 and above.
