I don't use file converting web sites because i have never had a need for that kinda service however i thought i may as well try one in case someday i might find myself requesting their services. Anyway one of those online converting websites is Cometdocs.com, the site supports over 50 type of file convertions mainly focusing on converting files to PDF or from PDF's. That's not all since you can also convert from XPS files (XML), convert Excel to CSV, Unix to DOS, MAC to UNIX, compare files, get the MP3 info of a file and a bunch of other convertions that are too many to list. While Cometdocs has a lot of useful convertions i missed some, for example converting Open Office documents into files compatible with Microsoft Office would be real handy , hopefully they add that in a later update. The site requires an email address that will be used to notify you when your convertion is done, if you don't like this you can always create a free account that includes various benefits like better priority in the conversion sequence, keep files/conversions longer than 24 hours for later use and finally not having to enter your email address every time that you want to convert something. In conclusion i found CometDocs.com useful, easy to use and working well but it could use some more types of file conversions.
