But why go get a viewer when you already have one, called a browser?

Easier to keep and maintain, of course, for those responsible for
maintaining it, but for those just wanting to look at it, it's easier to
let your browser do the work. Any computer with a browser, without
having Excel or any viewer. If we want to use viewers, we could just
abandon web browsers and look at all graphics with Photoshop, and all
text with word processors. The browser allows viewing all these,
regardless of computer, regardless of any other installed programs,
that's what the net is all about, universal access to that info.
