Online Office Applications

One of the main drawbacks of online office applications is that potentially sensitive documents are stored on their servers. Even though they claim to have security features, we should take precautions while using online office applications. There are many online office applications Google doc, Thinkfree office and here is another one based on Ajax methodology -ajax13, an all in one application includes Write, spreadsheet, presentation, sketch etc. These applications requires Firefox version 1.5 or higher and works with any OS.

>>Ajax Write is a word processor that can read and write Microsoft Word and other standard document formats. It is designed to look like Microsoft Word, making it easy for anyone to start using it without needing to learn a new program

>> Ajax Presents is a presentation editor that lets you read, edit and save Microsoft Power Point files (.ppt) as well as Open Standard Presentation files (.odp).

>>Ajax Sketch is a drawing tool that provides a familiar environment for diagramming, creating flow charts, free hand drawing and more. You can perform functions such as resize, rotate, change background or pen colors.

>>AjaxXLS Viewer is a web-based spreadsheet viewer compatible with Microsoft Excel and Open Office allows ajaxXLS to preserve all your common cell formatting categories such as text styles, decimals, currencies, dates, and times as well as formulas.

All services are free and required registration with them and they also offer 1GB of storage space.
