Microsoft Office 2010 – Web Apps

Microsoft is hitting the web with new online edition of the office 2010 suite. Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote will also be having web-based counterparts to edit, store and share documents online created using these tools. This makes Web Apps interesting and worth investigating.

So Office Web Apps will allow you to create, edit, store and share the documents online and will allow individual users to save their documents through Windows Live SkyDrive service (Microsoft’s free online service).

Before We can download and use Web Apps, we first need to install the office 2010 beta available for download from Microsoft website. Sharing documents with others through Web Apps requires to e-mail each person a link to your document. As we try Office Web Apps, we need to keep in mind that it’s beta.

Web Apps runs IE7, IE8; Firefox 3.5 or higer on Windows, Linux and the Mac.
