Adobe launches online office suite

By on
Late last year Adobe surprised many when it embraced the advent of online office suites by acquiring online word processor Buzzword. Now, the company is turning up the heat a notch by launching its most ambitious web-based offering to date: Acrobat.com. In addition to word processing, this suite of productivity tools include a web conferencing / whiteboard app (ConnectNow), online file sharing (Share), file storage (My Files), and a PDF converter.

Acrobat.com doesn’t do everything that Microsoft or Google do with office productivity applications as it lacks things like spreadsheets and presentations, but it is a notable start nonetheless. Based on its own Flash / Flex technology, Acrobat.com delivers a fast and elegant experience that is well worth to check out. In addition, to complement this launch, Adobe has also announced version 9 of its Adobe Acrobat product which now incorporates Flash into the PDF experience.
