this is the first time i know ajax , stands for "Asynchronous JavaScript and XML" , "... is a web development technique for creating interactive web applications" ... and now we have this Writely.com providing free web-based online office word processor and they are kind of os independant ... had just tried it on-line and i think its great for the majority of common computer users ... it can create , import and export ... not bad actually but probably more suited for broadband connections ... infact there are more browser-based ajax office suites out there including word processor , desktop publishing , spreadsheet , "presentation-building software" , calender solution and a "web-based version of Microsoft's OneNote" , for those(like me) who know ajax office suites for the first time , you can try them just for fun from here if they are free(i think so) to use ::
