Among the included options are the basic online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote, as well OfficeOnline has access to your Outlook.com email and contact lists. The suite is 100% browser-based, making it easily portable to any computer that happens to be available.

It is still tightly integrated with Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage system, however, loading existing files from there and automatically saving new ones.

If you’re worried that Office Online will be useless without the latest edition of Internet Explorer, you can relax. Despite the complexity of being a browser-based office suite, it works perfectly on Firefox, Chrome, and all versions of Internet Explorer back to 8.0.http://www.notebookreview.com/sof...ne-review/

Once you're signed in, the documents, spreadsheets, presentations, and notebooks you create in the Office Online programs are stored in your OneDrive (formerly called SkyDrive). You can share them via link and work on them with other people. In the Office Online programs, you can work together at the same time and see each other's changes immediately.

You can also open these online documents in the Office programs you have installed on your computer, and work on them while they're stored in your OneDrive.

Office Online runs in your web browser. There's nothing to download or install. Office.com includes hundreds of free templates as well, so you don't need to start from scratch every time you create a flyer, calendar, budget, invoice, school project, photo album, or many other kinds of documents.

You can save to computer via free onedrive application or simply download/upload to onedrive .com. If you are using Windows 8 or above OneDrive is integrated into the File explorer view so accessing your cloud content is as seamless as files on a local disk

Yup thats why Apple heads flocked to Office on IOS to run from alternatives and MS owns 90% of PC market and nearly all of the Enterprise space
People can and will upgrade....from terribly implemented other convaluted options like google docs, open office or libre office

Personally, I much prefer OpenOffice, which I've used for years. I have MS Office on another machine, and try to use OO whenever I can. Let's hear it for openware!

Most will disagree but glad you enjoy OO most do not, most want MS Office becuse thats the standard for productivity at home and the workplace..a mature industry leading product.

Although Microsoft is run by drunken lemurs, no productivity suite even gets close to Microsoft Office. Add OneDrive with 200GB of storage to free Office Online and this may spell the end to the competing suites.

Microsoft is confusing the heck out of me. What exactly is the difference between this and Office 365? I am lost trying to keep with MS naming of their products.
