The ‘pre-announcement’ announcement on the Google Docs Blog (which isn’t very interesting), comes hot-on-the-heels of Microsoft unveiling its plans for Office 2010. Plans that include a new web-based component, designed to directly take on Docs.
Google’s counterpunch comes in the form of a promise that their redesign will make sharing more intuitive. The practical upshot of which is that users might notice some malfunctioning modules over the next couple of days.
Do you think that Office 2010 will claw back the market share they’ve lost to Docs? I’m writing this article, about Docs, on Docs, which is frankly, not as weird as it sounds. Will you be moving back to Office? Answers in the comments chums.
