New Google Docs Upgrades Cloud Services, Improves Collaboration

Google has launched a new version of its office suite, Google Docs ( The new infrastructure of Google Docs offers greater flexibility, improved performance, and a better platform for quick feature development. In particular it emphasizes fast and flexible collaboration features, such as viewing character-by-character changes among collaborators. A sidebar chat feature lets collaborators discuss documents directly. New document formatting features have improved import/export fidelity. There is a revamped comment system, real margins and tab stops, and improved image layout within documents.

The upgrade also includes new spreadsheet editors and a new stand-alone drawings editor. The faster spreadsheet editor includes a formula bar for cell editing, auto-complete, drag and drop columns, and simpler navigation between sheets. The new collaborative drawing editor allows users to collaborate on drawings and makes them accessible directly from the docs list. Stand-alone drawings can include flow charts, designs, diagrams, and other fun or business graphics. Users can copy the drawings into documents, spreadsheets, or presentations using the web clipboard or share and publish them as Google Docs.
