Google Spreadsheets pushing Web 2.0 limitsJune 6th, 2006
Google is pushing browser capabilities to the limit again by launching Google Spreadsheets – aÂ Web 2.0 implementation.Â Â The sharing capabilities are really neat and allows you to share spreadsheets, similar to sharing Google Calendars.Â You can upload Excel spreadsheets as well.Â Google is not the first and at this time not the best on-line spreadsheet service: It is still in alpha (Google Labs) and by invitation only, but it’s really good to get a player like Google in the game because it will certainly helpÂ put pressure on Microsoft to reconsider it’s MS Office licensing strategy.
Some other on-line spreadsheet service providers:
- Zoho Sheet has a more advanced on-line spreadhseet with a very good interface.
- ajaxXLS is a on-line spreadhseet viewer (vierwer only)
- Num Sum
