Docs Rocks

I just tried out Google Docs for the first time as a way to write my stories during a lunch break at the day job and I'm very impressed! Google docs is an online word processor. The controls look like a regular computer-based word processor.


Under the "File" button, there's a "word count" feature that's much nicer than the one in Word.


It saved itself every few seconds, which is always nice if you're worried about writing the most brilliant sentence you ever wrote and then losing it to a power failure or something.

I'm always happy to learn a new way to do something. I wonder how the availability of something like this as open source will eventually change the monopoly of software like Word? I know there is open-source software out there like Open Office, but frankly that has never run smoothly on any of my computers. Google Docs ran smooth as silk.

Neat. I really like the expanded stats window.
