HOW TO save online PDF, Office docs directly to Google Drive from browser

Have you come across a scenario where a hyperlink within a web page leads you to a PDF file or Office document, you don't want to leave the browser at that point & would prefer reading it later? Or maybe as you're browsing this web page through your mobile browser, you'd prefer archiving these files to Google Docs.

Google Docs Viewer provides a way to open a web hosted PDF file or Office document within your browser and ALSO save that file directly to Google Drive without having to download it to your PC/device and then upload it to Google Drive.
The trick is to append the URL of the web hosted PDF file or Office document to Google Docs Viewer service -
https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=https://aka.ms/SQLtoAzure/MobPDF

After that file is opened within the browser, click the "Save to Drive" icon (as shown in the screenshot) in the header of Google Docs Viewer to save it to your Google Drive.
