    If you have the Moto Cliq XT it comes with QuickOffice. Not as good as D2G though.

    Is there a way to view them in a web browser?

    Example: I have home page for my university courses, and some of them have a link which if you click in a full browser on a computer, it opens a word document in MS Word.

    Is there an Android solution for this?

    I don't think so.

    I'm pretty sure that you have to download the link to your sd card, and open it with a document viewing app.

    I may be wrong.

    actually, gdocs works... Just not the best formatting. It has saved me though.

    That's also fine. How do I save the file to my SD card? I tried tapping and holding the link, but that just saves it as a strange html file. It might just be the site though.

    Hmmm...

    That's odd.

    It may be the link itself.

    That's happened to me before. It was the format that the link was in when my professor posted it online.

    Yeah, the site is badly coded and wants everything you click to open in a popup which then downloads the word file, and complains if you try to open it in a new tab instead. -.-
