Somehow I missed the announcements of Google Spreadsheets. Not that I am that interested anyway, but usually releases like this are surrounded with a lot of hype.
Well, Google Spreadsheets is all you can expect of it – a web-based spreadsheet application, which is very similar in look and feel to Microsoft Excel and a billion of other spreadsheet applications. It features all the usual functionality – cells, formatting, formulas, etc. You can import your existing spreashits from a comma-separated values files (CSV) or Microsoft Excel.
The additional bonus of using web-based applications as opposite to system applications is easier sharing. Google realizes this and provides a handy interface to do so.
If only I had any task that would need a spreadsheet…
