Another big name online office suite

Adobe now has an online office suite. This from DownloadSquad:

Adobe has built a suite of online office applications to compliment Buzzword, the company’s online word processor. We’ve covered Buzzword in the past. It’s pretty, fast, and not really all that much more useful than similar products from Google or Zoho. Here’s a rundown of the other applications you’ll find at

  • ConnectNow: A web conferenceing tool that lets you share your desktop with others, chat, talk over a VoIP connection, or share files and mark up whiteboards.
  • Share: Selectively share files with other users. Adobe Share lets you send files to a list of contacts, and lets the recipients view PDF image, and video files online.
  • Create PDF: Seriously, do we need to tell you what this does?
  • My Files: Store and organize up to 5GB of files online.

Sounds neat – but it seems to have a small graphical issue on my computer – I think there is a menu across the top of the homepage, but it’s cut off.

I’ll probably give these tools a test before my next Office 2.0 class 🙂


  1. Would you mind letting me know on which browser/OS-version combination this happened? Looks like Camino to me, but please confirm. And if you have another second and can tell me which Flash Player you have installed (via then we have all the information we need to make sure that things run smoothly for you in the future.

    Cheers – Tobias
