Key Features & Benefits

1. HTML5-based native text rendering. The viewer provides two document rendering modes – it can either rasterize documents to images or convert them to pure HTML/CSS/SVG. When documents are rasterized, text is rendered in a separate layer over the image backgrounds, so that both methods deliver high-fidelity true text rendering. This ensures sharp and clear fonts rendering. It also allows end users to search for and select/copy text right from documents embedded to a web-page.

2. Cross-browser compatibility. Documents rendered with GroupDocs.Viewer can be viewed from any web-enabled device, including mobiles and tablets, using any modern web-browser. There is no need for end-users to install 3rd party software or browser plugins.

3. Convenient UI. The viewer comes with a convenient UI that can be embedded to a web-page for easy document navigation. It allows users to turn document pages like slides, preview them with thumbnails, jump straight to a specified page, zoom in/out of a document, print and download documents from a web-browser, etc.

Plugin Installation

Please note that before installing the plugin, you need to deploy the library itself on your server. You can download a free evaluation copy of the library from the GroupDocs website:
