Office web applications

Until Google comes with an Office web application here is a list of Ajax-based Office replacements:

Writely - "The Web Word Processor" (note that for creating documents, it uses an HTML editor and then converts to Word format)

FCKeditor is also an MS Word-like web app.

gOFFICE - "a browser-based online word processor and desktop publishing program"

Num Sum - web-based spreadsheets - except only the author of a spreadsheet can edit it.

Kiko - Online calendar solution powered by Ajax.

called S5 - web-based Powerpoint

Webnote - web-based version of Microsoft's OneNote

thinkfree - online Office suite

Openomy - online file-system


  1. gOFFICE is no longer free. It now costs 99 cents per month.

    I signed up when it was still free, so I can use it for free :).

  2. You can find an account to "borrow" at bugmenot
