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.
