Google Spreadsheet Spreads Brower-based Productivity

The race is on to deliver desktop quality productivity plus the enhancements of more web-based Web 2.0 interactivity like the real time sharing of documents than any desktop app can dream of… And, I think, with its various acquisitions, Google has taken the lead in this race. For example, they recently acquired the web-based word processing application Writely.

Next up, and soon to be released is Google Spreadsheets (click here to request an invitation to the public “beta”) which will give you Excel-like powers in a browser-based application.

Google’s Spreadsheet “Sneek Peek” preview is here.

    I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog audience have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

      Compatibility is really a matter of thorough testing and coding as necessary. Explorer is a major pain and we no longer support the older versions. IE 6 is problematic. There’s no quick fix if you are coding your own theme. The higher quality professional themes make it less likely you’ll run into issues. good luck and I hope this helps.
