  1. I have used Zoho Viewer – – in the past and found it quite easy to use. You can upload files or grab them from a URL. If you check the Publish This box, you can choose the amount of time the document will be available. The URL is private so it can also be used for emailing documents easily. Those who view it can also download it. No signup, either.

    Thank you for the great list! Love the blog.
