View Contents of a Zip File Online with Google Docs

Consider this. Your friend sends you a 10 MB zip files as an email attachment and you are not too sure what files are inside that archive. It could be a slideshow with pictures of cute cats, that you would definitely not like to open, or maybe something more important.
 Now it is very simple you can just open that using GOOGLE doc. You need not to download it and then view by extracting it using winzip or winrar or any other tool to unzip it

That means you can browse the contents of an attached zip file online without having to download it. If there any Office documents or Photoshop files or even another zip file contained inside, you can view their content as well in the same Google Docs viewer window.
Google Docs can handle ZIP and RAR formats
