In summary, we see Google Docs as an effective tool for simple documents, especially those that are less than a page or two. It’s also very useful when you don’t care about the page - maybe for a Kerouac-inspired long ramble of text.
However, comparing Buzzword to Google Docs is a little like comparing Microsoft Word to Notepad or, on a Mac, Apple Pages to TextEdit. One is a serious word processor with page layout and pagination capabilities, while the other is a convenient and simple text entry tool.
If you’re looking for a rich writing experience, and unparalleled fidelity between the screen and the printed page, then Buzzword is a great way to go.
