There is a setting in the document library settings that will set the default
for office  docs to open  in the browser. This does require that office be
installed on each client  machine.

An alternative would be to use publishing and the document conversion service to
actually convert the documents  to html. Out of the box this would only be
available for DOCX and DOCM files. But you can write your own document
conversion program and load it into SharePoint to handle other conversions.
