menu, buttons, shortcuts, macros etc) and also convenience(Word icon
is right there on your desktop and everyone knows how to use it).
IMHO, the best web-office tool is one that is going to be a
combination of desktop/online integration and zoho is one step closer
than google docs(Maybe MS Groove too but I never really could figure
