I just had a this msg from google toolbar, when I was clicking a .doc URL

On my computer I have openoffice s the assoicated program for .doc files.

When did google begin over riding my defaults and pushing D&S ? I dont like the idea of D&S being pushed to me.. if the doc was in my email, I Can understand the approach of open in Google Doc's!!

That would be a bug. It's only supposed to pop up if the OS doesn't have any viewer registered for that file type.

If its a bug, then the community would appreciate a minor fix :)-
