How many different file formats do you imagine there are out there? There are oodles of proprietary formats—Word's DOC files, Excel's XLS, to name a few—as well as bunches of special-purpose formats. And then there's the joy of the incompatibility of DOS, UNIX, and Mac file formats (darn those end-of-line characters!). So how do you get them all to play nice?

Cometdocs is a free online service that helps you convert files from one format to another. Whether it's PDF-ing a Word DOC, or turning that PDF file into a Word DOC, if you can imagine it, these guys can probably accomplish it. They can also work with many legacy file formats, turning your old word processing docs into something that you can use today.

They've also got some special tricks up there sleeves. Run a directory listing of your website and they can spit-out a Google XML sitemap file. Submit a scanned PDF or TIFF file and their OCR tools will give your content back to you in electronic format.

Cometdocs is free, and you don't even have to sign up to use it. You'll need a web browser, and that's about it, so it doesn't make any difference which platform you're running.

    I believe downloadable programs are a much better solution. This is because you don’t have to wait for the file, and also because some online converters have a restriction on the file size.
