Google Docs & Spreadsheets
October 13, 2006 by bhuvans
Google has dropped Writely at last…and has combined Writely features and Google Spreadsheets into one and named it as Google Docs & Spreadsheets. But still I will be missing the brand “Writely” [short and Sweet].
Google Docs is FREE & Supported by most of the browsers. At this time Google Docs & Spreadsheets is only available in English. However, you can type data in other languages in your documents and spreadsheets.
Here’s what you can do with documents:
Upload Word documents, OpenOffice, RTF, HTML or text (or create documents from scratch).
Use simple WYSIWYG editor to format your documents, spell-check them, etc.
Invite others (by e-mail address) to edit or view your documents and spreadsheets .
Edit documents online with whomever you choose.
View your documents’ revision history and roll back to any version.
Publish documents and spreadsheets online to the world, as Web pages or post documents to your blog.
Download documents to your desktop as Word, OpenOffice, RTF, PDF*, HTML or zip.
Here’s what you can do with spreadsheets:
Import and export of .xls, .csv, and .ods formatted data (and export functionality for .pdf and .html).
Enjoy intuitive navigation and editing, like any traditional document or spreadsheet.
Use formatting and formula editing in spreadsheets so you can calculate results and make your data look the way you want it.
Chat in real time with others who are editing your spreadsheet.
Let see how it looks like…
