Introducing new Google Docs

Google Docs recently released major updates to its office suite, focusing on significantly improving document collaboration. On top of that, a new application called Google Drawing is now included.


All three applications - Doc, Spreadsheet and Drawing, now have Google Wave's like collaboration feature and a new commenting system. Real-time updates for multiple users' editing is now more interactive.

The upgrade, however, will also ditch Google Gears in favour of HTML 5 for offline functionality starting May 3. As a result, offline support will be temporarily removed for Docs starting May 3.

I am hoping HTML 5 to be introduced to Google Gmail soon. The current Google Gears for Gmail is lacking synchronization for Google Contacts and I am betting on HTML 5 to solve this.
