3.0 works great. The interface is polished & elegant, and it works on Intel now! Thanks for updating the product.

Very cool plugin, so it's really a shame that it doesn't seem to work in Firefox…

Unfortunately this plug-in no longer works on Intel machines, since it's not a universal binary. If you google for DocPreview, there is a universal binary Safari plug-in on Intel machines. But it doesn't work for Firefox, only for Safari.

Can the developer just recompile this thing as a universal binary? I miss being able to open up Word docs in Firefox.

Still works with latest version of Safari, but when it kicks in you get an OS error. But it still displays fine and everything. Other than that little bug, it's great.

Absolutely amazing! Ever since I started using my Powerbook exclusively I've missed this feature of IE/Word on the PC, and now it's back, with a better GUI and quicker to boot! Thanks Schubert!

I downloaded and installed the plugin according to the readme file. I am still unable to view the word documents on the browser (I've tried both Safari and Firefox). Whenever I click on a doc, it saves the file as it usually does. What am I doing wrong?
