Creating Online Documents with Google Docs

I have used Google Docs for many years, but I never had the chance to write about it until now.  For those who have not tried the application yet, Google Docs is an online office suite that lets you create, edit, and share documents, spreadsheets, presentations, drawings, and forms.

Google Docs allows you to collaborate with other Google Docs users in real time. You can upload office suite files such as Microsoft Office and OpenOffice. You can choose to convert these files to Google Docs, or to save them in their original format. Google Docs allows you to download your files in PDF and supports the following file formats:

  • Microsoft Word (.DOC and .DOCX)
  • Microsoft Excel (.XLS and .XLSX)
  • Microsoft PowerPoint (.PPT and .PPTX)
  • Apple Pages (.PAGES)
  • Adobe Illustrator (.AI)
  • Adobe Photoshop (.PSD)
  • Tagged Image File Format (.TIFF)
  • Autodesk AutoCad (.DXF)
  • Scalable Vector Graphics (.SVG)
  • PostScript (.EPS, .PS)
  • TrueType (.TTF)
  • XML Paper Specification (.XPS)
  • Archive file types (.ZIP and .RAR)

Google Docs is available for free when your register a  Google Account.
