Google Docs support viewing of ZIP and RAR files

Google Docs has added support to view ZIP and RAR files in their Google Docs Viewer. The viewing is extended to nested ZIP and RAR archives that are embedded inside other archives. Files in the archive, the file types, and the size of those files will be shown during viewing.

On top of that, Google Docs has added support to save, download and print files.

When you hover over the list you can activate a menu by clicking Actions. You’ll be able to View items supported by Google Docs Viewer and Print (PDF) those that we offer PDF support. Save to Google Docs and Download appear for all files.
