MS Office On The Web



Microsoft has fired its latest salvo at Google, announcing a free web-based version of its Office software. Office 2010 will include lightweight versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote when it ships next year. The new web offering will compete with Google's free online Docs suite launched three years ago.

Microsoft's announcement is being seen as the latest move in a tit-for-tat rivalry between two tech giants as it and Google increasingly make efforts to encroach on one another's turf.

When Google announced its Chrome operating system last week, the blogosphere watched and waited for Microsoft to react.
