Google Spreadsheets

Filed under: Uncategorized — Keith @ 1:58 pm

I just found out about Google Spreadsheets, and they once again left me shaking my head with how well they are pushing the web browser as a main-line application interface.

I have a small spreadsheet that I use to keep track of my personal budget. Not that I ever really pay attention to my budget, but I occassionally glance at it. The problem I have had is one of portability. I first created an Excel spreadsheet at work one day, but then needed to use it at home. Then I switched my home OS from XP to a flavour of Linux, and consequently used OpenOffice, which rquired me to re-write some of my macros.

While Google Spreadsheets may not be as advanced as Excel or OpenOffice, it is more than good enough to keep my simple budget spreadsheet for me, and allow me to access it from essentially anywhere.

AJAX just keeps getting cooler by the minute! :)
