Hands on: Google Spreadsheets is more powerful than you think

Hands on: Google Spreadsheets is more powerful than you think "The program isn't as rich as another free alternative — OpenOffice.org — but its collaboration features may win you over. All in all, Google Spreadsheets offers surprising utility for a Web-based spreadsheet. It's not a real alternative for everyday Excel users, but for occasional use when the data isn't sensitive, it deserves consideration."

Hi Peter,

I agree; this isn't a corporate tool. But it's very nicely designed, has a zillion formulas, and if you need collaboration, the sharing and chat are quite nice. Sorting and printing are pretty limited, but I didn't expect turbo-level features. It's nice for anyone who doesn't want to or can't install OpenOffice.org, or who has quite limited spreadsheet needs.
