Lightbulb Open saved html pages

A little maybe silly question.

Is it possible to open file.html before saved on internal memory or SD card?

For my experience I can't open with default browser.
Excuse me if this question was asked in some old post.

Hi Erminio!

That was an interesting question, in my opinion.

I tried it out by copying a webpage (html file) onto my eDGe internal storage from a file on my LAN. Once the file (I tried 2, one html, one htm. Same result.) was in a Local folder I could tap it and get a menu asking how I wanted to complete the action. I have 4 choices, none of which is the native browser.

My choices are: Dolphin Browser HD, HTMLViewer (which I am guessing comes with the eDGe), Miren Browser, and Pocket Casts. However, none of them seem to work from there.

I just tried opening Documents to Go and finding the file in the list of Local files. When I tapped on the file through that interface I got the same 4 options, but this time both Dolphin and Miren browsers opened the file! The HTMLViewer still didn't work and I didn't even try Pocket Casts (which I will be deleting).

Good luck!!

let's assume you are trying to open "1.html" on the root of sd card with the default browser.
1.launch the default browser;
2.key in "content://com.android.hmtlfileprovider/sdcard/1.html" in the address box of the browser then go;
then you can use the print to eink function of the default browser to read it on eink.
In this way you can also read txt files on eink.

Using DocsToGo choose Local Files and then browse to the location of the .html file. Then choose the file. The html viewer should open automatically.

If you choose a .txt file you will first be prompted to choose either the html viewer or Es Edit note.
