Convert and Compare Documents Online Quick and Easy

I was going to share a site that I had discovered some years ago that allowed you to compare to verions of a file and make notations.  It was called Textflow.  Unfortunately, they appear to have come out of beta testing and while the API appears to still be available if you have the technical skills, they no longer have a free version of th utility online.  This left me scrambling to find something similar and in my research I stumbled upon CometDocs.  This online utility claims that you can compare to files online, unfortunately I haven't figured out quite how that feature works.  But what is great about CometDocs is the ability to convert PDF files to Documents, HTML, Text, JPGS, GIFS and a host of other file types.  You can also work in reverse, converting of any of these types to PDFs - not as impressive as a number of a tools will do this).  Simply upload you PDF and seleect the convert option. You will be asked for your e-mail address so they can send you the final result.  However, if you sign up for a free account, you can download your files directly fronm the file manager.  The concversion when done this way is quick, accurate and efficient.  How many times have you wished you could pull information from a PDF file directly into an editable DOC or HTML file?  Now you can with CometDocs!
