Access Office Anywhere with Web Apps
Microsoft also introduced the Office Web Apps along with Office 2010. These are web-based versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. Though these versions are streamed down, they provide the basic features and functions of their application counter-part.
The Office Web Apps also aid in sharing and collaborating Office documents. It enables the new co-authoring functionality discussed earlier. Plus they let you create and edit documents from virtually anywhere with an Internet connection.
You can, for example, jump on a public workstation that doesn’t have Microsoft Office installed and still be able to edit documents with your SkyDrive account, all right in the web browser.
