Use this Gmail hack to Convert PDFs to HTML
Tired of watching your poor computer practically putter out when trying to open a PDF file? Real estate people get a LOT of PDFs!
Try this: Use your gmail account to instantly convert that PDF into an HTML document! You can do this in at least 2 ways.
The first way (as described by Labnol) is to upload the document as an attachment in a Gmail message, then email it to yourself at the same account. Check your inbox. You have mail (from your former frustrated self)! Open the message and click on "view as HTML." Now congratulate yourself for being so smart.
The second way is something that i came up with tonight. remember a while back when i told you about GDrive (don't forget the Firefox extension that lets you use your Gmail account as a file server-GSpace)? Get the extension. Log into your account through the FTP and then search your computer for PDFs. Once you've uploaded what you like to your account, go to your inbox and send yourself the emails containing the files that you want to convert. Now, sit back and congratulate yourself for reading this post.
Oh yeah...you can use this technique for many types of documents other than PDFs. Labnol points out a few for you:
(MS Word .doc, Excel .xls, Powerpoint .ppt, Rich Text Format .rtf),Good Luck Pros!
OpenOffice.org Document Formats (Writer, Calc, Impress, Presentation)
and WML Files (Wireless markup language) to HTML.
