Not yet gone, but soon, are going to be the days where expensive Word Processor, are required to type professional documents. Introducing Zoho Writer, the most comprehensive web-based application for small businesses. Because of its integration with Google Gears, it allows the application to be run offline, even without connection to the Internet.
Offered by AventNet, Zoho Writer is a strong contender against rival traditional software makers, such as Microsoft, Corel and OpenOffice.org. Offering nearly close to 20 web-based applications, some of them are free for personal use, while others are available to be licensed for businesses. In this latest release of Zoho Writer 2.0, the enhancement is in the Menu Tab design, which streamlines the toolbar with tabbed menus that organise commands in context-based groups – which makes it look like Microsoft Office 2007 ribbon style.
Similar to a normal Word application, users can begin with a blank page or import file from other formats. The limit here is a 10MB file size. It may not have some of the advanced functionality of desktop applications, however it does provide one of the richest feature sets of any online word processor.
If you do not have a Zoho account, you can also make use of Google account to log on to Zoho, as both have integrated features to link both accounts together. I strongly encourage you to try that out. No download is required, just access the link here to try out Zoho Writer.
