Up Next: Google Spreadsheets

without comments

The next stage in Google’s ongoing effort to become a full desktop-OS-in-a-browser: Google Spreadsheets. Supposedly you can upload your existing XLS docs (and CSV, of course, and probably other formats as well) and it will keep your formulas and formatting intact. And, because this is Google, you can share your spreadsheets with others and let your buddies edit your them — while you’re still working on them.

Is there any doubt at this point that Google’s intention is to launch it’s own web-based operating system? Between this app and their forthcoming word processing program, plus GMail and Google Calendar, they’ve gone a long way toward making Microsoft Office potentially obsolete. No wonder Microsoft’s Steve Ballmer throws chairs when his developers leave to work at Google.
