The new version appears to have been introduced without any serious testing or any credible bug reporting system having been devised–check the chaos over at Something in Writely is broekn. My particular problem is that using IE6 on Win XP it is no longer possible to paste into docs without the browser crashing, which makes the application completely unusable as far as I’m concerned. So what to do? Check out the alternatives or go back to mailing Word docs to myself?
Here’s a list of alternatives to Google apps. I’m going to have a look at Zoho with a view to switching–it seems stable and comprehensive enough for my humble purposes, and lack of integration with Gmail is a price worth paying for that.
