OK, Google Spreadsheets is cool

Got my invite today to Google Spreadsheets, initial thoughts: it’s pretty damn cool.

It’s quick, and it seems to do everything I’d ever want to do with a spreadsheet, at least is plays like Excel does in terms of formula which is…well cool.

Is it a Microsoft killer? I still don’t think so, but there is little doubt that, particularly compared to Writely, that Google Spreadsheets has more potential, particularly in terms of group collaboration, to gain a decent number of users. Certainly for people who travel a lot, this is going to be very, very handy.
