For those using Opera, check out the Opera Show function. When viewing a web page in fullscreen mode (F11) it can split the page up into slides and become just like a powerpoint presentation (or OO.o Impress), except it is using html documents formatted with CSS. Check out this page for more details: http://www.opera.com/support/tutorials/operashow/.

Neat feature, especially if you use Opera Portable like me. But I also have OpenOffice Portable, so I don't think I'll ever use Opera Show.

It's a feature that has been available with CSS2 all along (the projection media type), I can understand why IE wouldn't make use of it (microsoft wanting to protect it's MS Office product line), but neither firefox nor safari support it either. CSS is so powerful it is a shame browsers don't step up to the plate to make full use of it.

EDIT: Firefox can make use of these features by using this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4650.

EDIT2: Sort of... the slide background and formating is used instead of the standard website formating... but the slides are not broken up like slides should be. So it's close, but not quite.
