Full-featured web services are here

BetaNews has a snippet about a fully functional Excel-compatible spreadsheet online. The company offering the online spreadsheet is halfbrain.com. This is a fun one to check out. I was really impressed with the technology. The biggest hassle currently is that Netscape browsers aren't yet supported. With IE 5, however, the experience is really exhilarating. There are a number of demo spreadsheets you can play around with like: stock option calculator, Bill Gates' wealth, and holiday dinner planner. This is the kind of technology Sun is promising with the Star Office online services. I can't wait to see more of the same.
