rollApp: A Firefox Extension for Viewing and Editing 100+ Types of Files in Browser Itself
rollApp is an extension for FireFox browser that let’s you view and edit doc, xls, pdf, zip, rar and other 100+ types files directly in your browser. You can view and edit the files interactively without having to download them or without having to install any additional software’s while browsing on various websites.
Also this app will let you to save the edited files automatically to your Dropbox, Google Drive, Box and 4shared cloud storage. You don’t have to carry any software wherever you go. If you have a portable Firefox browser, then things will be lot easier to you. Just open the files you want to view or edit in the browser; make the changes and save them to your cloud storage.

Editing a document
Open a application. Here I am going to edit my Resume in LibreOffice Writer. Launch your LibreOffice Writer. Open a file to edit. You will be redirected to your Dropbox (or any other cloud storage that you have connected) home folder. Select the files you want to edit.
As I mentioned before, you don’t need to install any software on your local system. Everything is done in the Firefox browser itself. Although a notable disadvantage is slow processing. Its dependent on your internet connection speed. Enjoy!
