Google had announced last week that it was going to overhaul the Google Docs interface over the next few weeks. Some of those changes have already taken place. One notable change is that the filter for “PDFs” has been supplanted by “Files” in the "items by type" slide-down menu.
This has further fueled speculation that Google Docs is on its way to becoming an online file storage service . There is a possibility that Google might allow people to upload other file formats besides PDF files. A person is also said to have stumbled upon an image of what appears to be a folder icon featuring the familiar Google Chrome logo . Perhaps Google may need such a folder icon for a web-based storage service to compliment Chrome OS.
