Clear Text Rendering GroupDocs.Viewer for .NET can both rasterize documents and convert them to a combination of HTML+CSS+SVG. When rasterizing documents, text is rendered in a separate layer on top of the document. Both methods provide clear native text rendering and ensure fonts look sharp even when zooming in/out of a document. Native text rendering also allows your website visitors to search for and select/copy text right from documents embedded to a web-page.
No Client-Side Installation There is no need for users to install any 3rd party software or plugins to view documents hosted on your website. GroupDocs.Viewer supports all common web-browsers, including IE8+, Chrome, Opera, FireFox, Safari5+ and their mobile versions.
Convenient UI The viewer has a convenient UI that can be embedded to a web-page and allows users to easily browse through large multi-page documents. While viewing documents, users can preview and navigate pages with thumbnails, turn them with a button like slides, quickly jump straight to a page, zoom in/out of a document, print and download the original file, etc.
