Google is releasing a new Google Spreadsheets on Tuesday. This will enable anyone with a web browser to create and interact with spreadsheet information.
Keep hooked to Google Labs for the latest developments. Followed by Google's purchase of Writely, Google Spreadsheets is another move against Microsoft, especially Microsoft Office. This spreadsheet enables you to-
- Import and export from .xls and .csv files
- Share and collaboratively edit with others
- Have multiple sheets
- Select and navigate in a way Google says will feel comfortable to most spreadsheet users
- Use over 200 functions, including some said to be "fairly complex"
Jonathan Rochelle, product manager of Google Spreadsheet said – "We feel strongly about people creating and sharing information on the web. Google Spreadsheets will allow people to take an organizational tool they already use and make it much easier for them to share and make it accessible. We think that there's already a large need for this product. People are already emailing spreadsheets back and forth," he said. "Providing something where there is no download and they can access from any machine we think is a compelling reason to use this product."
