Microsoft is bringing their Office Suite to a web browser near you in 2010.
In an effort to remain the productivity suite of choice amidst increasing operating system competition, Microsoft is moving their famed suite of applications online. A recent purchase of the domain Office.com is spurring talk of Microsoft’s plan to use the domain for their products in place of their current office.microsoft.com.
Cisco is also planning to release a competing suite of products in the near future. While some are excited about the possibilities with these new products, security remains a concern.
What are your thoughts on the push to move these apps online?
