Google Docs lets you create, share, and collaborate
on documents online. Instead of creating a document, sending it
as an attachment, receiving multiple revisions, and then having to merge edits,
with Google Docs, everyone works on the same version in real time. And Google
Docs just got better with rebuilt editers for documents, spreadsheets, and drawings
designed to improve collaboration and create speed and create richer documents.
Google documents have much better import fidelity, making it easier to move
your documents into the cloud. We’ve also added tabstops, a ruler to control margins
in a document and improved out images interact within documents. The comment
system makes it easy to add, reply, and move comments around in a document. And
collaboration now happens in real time. You can see what others are typing with
no need to refresh the page or wait, reducing confusion and saving you time.
We’ve also made some big improvements to Google spreadsheets. Now you
can edit a cell from the formula bar, use autofill, drag and drop columns,
and navigate easily between sheets. Significant speed and performance improvements
make spreadsheets load faster and scrolling, seamless. And as always, real-time
collaboration, chat, and cell presence work for many people at once.
We’ve also added a stand-alone editor for drawings to Google Docs. It’s easy to
make charts, diagrams, and other schematics. As with Google Docs and spreadsheets,
you can also chat while you collaborate on drawings. We hope these improvements to Google Docs
help you and your teams be more productive. So try them
out or to learn more, visit docs.google.com.

    I can use the new spreadsheet features, but none of the Docs features are working for me – drag and drop images, ruler, wave like collaboration. Are others having the same issues as I am?

    @Ov3rKilZ Yeah I saw that too, but all the Macs that Google has and use in their departments are supplied (No-Charge at all) by Apple to Google so that Google can do some work for Apple on their Mac platform. They use different distribution of Linux, Windows, and their own Chrome OS for their work, but mainly Linux I think or their secretly own Operating System!?

    Google RULES!!!!

    Are these real spreadsheets? Microsoft Excel is priceless if you ask me! If Google spread sheets were as capable as Excel then I would be on board 100% I'm a small business owner and I use VLookups, HLookups, Trends, Sumif, Count, Indirect, SQRT, Average, IF, sdev, Hyperlinks, etc… not to mention visual basic, and macros. Can Google Docs perform like Excel?

    No need to split up documents to let people do their part, only to combine them again later.

    I use this for my book writing and just about everything else. I run Ubuntu 10.04 LTS for my OS and Google docs runs fin under Firefox and Chromium. I have done away with that bloated piece of [email protected] Micro$oft completely. All together my entire OS takes up less than 700 mb of drive space. Micro$oft's OSes can't even compare. Go open source!

    @XQZEK Yes Google Docs can open MS Office files. It's an office suite like MS Office or Libreoffice but it's web based and is more better for collaboration between people on the same file.
