Google adds Microsoft Word Previews to Gmail, eliminates View as Html option
Google has now added a new feature to Gmail: With a single click at the bottom of your message, (click View) you can preview Microsoft Word Documents. Up until now previews were viewed in html format using the view as html option. The supported formats are .doc and .docx. It also handles footnotes, page breaks and advanced options within the preview. Clicking within the Preview Window will open the document in Google Docs. You can save your documents to your Google Docs account from within the Preview Window. This now gives the users the ability to edit and resend Word Documents without having to download them and editing them.
Now supported are Word Documents and Powerpoint Files
Note: Works on your Mobile as well

Superb news mate!
Already my favorite email service provider. I am waiting for their HTML5 implementation of Gmail, then it will work more like a desktop app!
