Office Live

As I read the news that Microsoft is offering browser only versions of its cash cow, the Office suite, I was filled with nothing but skepticism. I was quite sure that even though the claim was that you can use a browser (including firefox), it will not work when you are on Linux or Mac.

Sure enough, a visit to the office live homepage from firefox on linux returns back a message that says that your browser is not supported.

Well, I guess supporting firefox would be a major climb down for them, but it is quite silly when a browser only version of office does not work on all browsers and across all platforms.

I guess I would stick to Google docs for now.
