Google has just rolled out a new version of Google Spreadsheets -- the last one of all three products in the Google Docs suite. I have to say, this new version works great for me -- it has the familiar menus at the top, a bunch of new toys, and of course, now it works well in Chrome.
The previous version of Google Spreadsheets, for me at least, was extremely bad in Google Chrome -- this version is quite speedy.
Here's what's new in Google Spreadsheets, from their documentation:
- Menus neatly provide access to all commands and functions.
- The updated toolbar gives shortcuts to the most commonly-used commands, including one-click access to currency, percent, and other cell formats.
- Hover over the sort bar to expose sorting tools. Drag it by the handle on the left to freeze header rows so they are visible while you scroll.
- Formulas are now accessible from the toolbar (or, as always, by typing them directly into the cell).
- In the Share menu you can invite people, see who has access, publish to the web, and find other advanced sharing features.
- Chat with people who are editing at the same time, or just see who's there.
- Your edits are always automatically saved.
