Google Spreadsheet..

Google, Tech

Two days back Google released a sneak peek preview of Google Spreadsheet. Google hasn’t opened up the “Ajax spreadsheet” to the general public yet. In order to try, you need to request an invitation.

Google SpreadsheetAs of now there have been 4 products released in Google’s Online Office Suite

However the Google spreadsheet is far away compared to Excel in terms of features. The unique feature of GS is supposed to be the ability to collaboratively edit a spreadsheet online. Here are few snapshots

    Even I tried out Google Spreadsheets yesterday. Its pretty cool. Though you cant do stuff like getting pivot charts etc, it can be used for atleast 80% of what we do. And having documents online and collaborating are good options. I think we are slowly moving away from desktop-centric softwares.
