Here's a new online Gerber and Excellon viewer:
Free online Gerber and Excellon viewer
It currently requires Firefox 3.5 or another Mozilla-based browser (Seamonkey, Fennec, etc.)
The developer told me they should have an IE version using the Silverlight plugin up and running within a month or so.

For a quick-and-dirty Gerber-viewing solution, try submitting your Gerber files to the freeDMcheck utility at 4pcb.com . It will automatically email you a high-resolution PDF file of each of the layers, and also a critque with any errors or problems it found.

Goto to second this, this software is appearing on lots of PCB and Electronics orientated forums, and seems to be getting high praise. I am evaluating the ODB++ side, but at the moment it gets my vote for best free viewer available now.
