Google Docs Goosed

One of the problems with cloud apps is they are only as fast as the servers that house them, the network that carries them and the PC that ultimately runs them. Google is hoping to increase their performance with tweaks to Google Docs that speed their JavaScript processing, not just making them snappier but able to handle larger files as well.

Google is also adding a bunch of new features so Google Docs can compare more favorably with Microsoft Office. One tweak seems pretty simple to me -- the word processor now has a margin ruler.

More details will be released April 20, and we will bring you all the news then.

Is Google Docs any good? Let us all know by writing dbarney@redmondmag.com.
