Please bear with me. I'm asking this because I'm got an edit ban because several of my lasts suggested edits were rejected. I'm guessing that people don't want that google-drive be removed from newer questions despite this tag usage guidelines says that it's for questions about a deprecated Google Drive installable client that it's not working anymore. Anyway, my edit ban is not the focus of this question, I'm just mentioned it as context of why I'm asking instead of suggesting an edit.
Opening local document files in Google Docs (deleted, require rep +10k, https://archive.is/xELWu h/t JourneyMan Geek) was shown in the related links while viewing a recent question. This question is from December 11, 2009. The title says "Google Docs" but the product that was called not longer exists. Again, I not searching for / digging into old questions this was shown by the system as a related question in a recently posted question.
This product, Google Docs from 2009, was replaced by Google Drive and Google Docs in 2012. Nowadays Google Drive is for file storage and Google Docs for and document processing application.
One possible change is to edit the question title to "Opening local document files in Google Drive" but the content is about using making Google Chrome to open local files "straight" in "Google Docs".
This question has three answers, all of them are obsolete.
It has google-docs. This tag nowadays doesn't make sense as the current Google Docs products is doesn't include a general document viewer, it only works for docx and Google Docs files (Google own file format for document processor files).
I think that this question should be closed as off-topic, even it's not completely off-topic as it about using Google Chrome and the current answer might require Chrome extensions, but it's not a really good question. Or it's according to Super User current standards?
P.S. I might be interesting to know why this question was not migrated to Web Applications when other questions where migrated. The question history timeline doesn't include migration records, actually it's surprinsingly too short for being a question from the Super User 1st year.
