Microsoft bows to Chrome's dominance, delivers Office Online add-on for browser rival | Computerworld

Beyond the melodramatic headline, this is another encouraging example of Microsoft's new customer-focused leadership -- and a smart way to invite more people to explore Office Online + OneDrive as an alternative to Google Drive
"The small extension adds an icon to Chrome that when clicked exposes the most recently-edited documents in OneDrive or OneDrive for Business; lets the user create a new document in the browser-based versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote or Sway; and open locally-stored documents.

While Microsoft has been beating the cross-platform drum company-wide since CEO Satya Nadella took over in early 2014, the recognition that Microsoft's biggest browser rival deserves special treatment was still stunning."
