How can we improve the OneDrive web experiences?

preview html files inside onedrive

Provide an option to view a basic HTML file preview, right inside the www.OneDrive.com .

Currently when I click a .html inside the onedrive, it gives me the code to edit. Instead of just code, provide an option to preview the basic HTML without any JS or CSS

    Definitely needed. I sent my OneDrive link to a prospective employer, but the non-rendered .htm files did not make me look good!

    I would be happy to just be able to see HTML files in iOS OneDrive. It's like they don't exist and Microsofts inability to even render the files as existing is troubling. Only cloud service I have seen that can't render simple HTML files.

    This would be great both on a business level and personal level...found this thread thanks to my job where we would really need a feature like this.

    This would be extremely useful. I'd like to be able to write HTML code on my PC, then test it on my phone through OneDrive.

    Please think about this some more? Now that GoogleDrive no longer has the ability to host there is a vacancy in the market. Even the ability to preview the website without a shareable link would be appreciated.

    Yes, I agree. This is needed.
    Related: if you Get Link and launch it in your browser, it downloads the file rather than launching it cleanly, but you can then view it as a web page (Takes one click in Mozilla and Chrome, but two clicks in Explorer!)

    I would like to view a html file in onedrive like a html viewer

    I agree, we need to be able to view HTML documents without leaving the browser
