Writely: Web Word Processor

Category: Component, RichTextWidget, Showcase

We have had a lot of interest in Writely, a web word processor.

Writely gives you a Word-like interface that appears just in your browser, and lets you:

  • Create documents (you would hope, wouldn’t you?:)
  • Share documents
  • Joint editing

Visit the Writely home page

Go on the tour

This is pretty cool! It’ll be better when you can get a version to run on your own server… better yet, a GPL’d version!

[…] We blogged about Writely way back (in the Web 2.0 sense), and it was an instant hit. Then we saw that Google has purchased the Writely folk. […]
