|Bottom line|| |
If you enjoy steady Internet access, Zoho Writer beta offers intuitive controls and can replace Microsoft Word for basic editing and formatting, if you can tolerate its beta glitches.
ThinkFree Office 3 for the desktop is a decent, low-cost alternative to Microsoft Office. Its free online component has more storage and a few more extra features than competing, browser-based services.
If you want to share files and stream media within a secure social-networking environment, Glide Write 1.0 beta makes a good, go-anywhere word processor, but its rivals are easier to set up for stand-alone writing and editing.
