Write, store, and access your documents with a great Editor on the Web. Free.

I noticed I have never done something like this before, so here goes nothing. :)First off, I want to talk about my favorite and only “real” word processor I know about, that can be accessed only on the web. Its name is “Buzzword” (developed by Ubiquity), and its easy to sign up and get into the public Beta. (That’s because it’s still getting new features added.) All you need to use it is a working Windows or Mac computer with Adobe Flash Player. It uses a very unique and simplified interface, and the usual features that let you insert and easily customize tables, spell check, and more are all there. But what really makes it so special is not just one, but several features all talked about in the list below.

1. Have Image. Will Follow. – You can upload an image quickly to Buzzword’s server, drag and drop the image anywhere into the text, and all of the text will easily flow around the image like water.

2. All files stored online – Instead of carrying around a small floppy disc, USB drive, or even your 18 pound laptop so you never have to let go of your important files, fear no longer. Now all you need to do is tattoo your email address and password to your arm to be able to access your files online. FREE.

3. Compatibility with Word – Online your Buzzword documents use their own “Buzzword” format. But when you want to download the file to your desktop, simply choose “save as”, and save it as a doc. file and you can easily open it in latr on in Microsoft Word. Easy right? Absolutely.

4. A little ruler that can easily be stored away and taken back out.

5. Document Version History – By clicking the little Greek or Roman character shown at the bottom of the screen, you can see all of the past versions of your document, and revert to it if it had something important.

6. Sliding menus – Instead of having a collage of buttons at the top of your screen, you can click on a certain button, and it will slide out and show you several different options. (Only one button’s contents shown at a time.)

7. Comment System – You can insert comments in a document off to the side, and in them have tables and images instead of just text.

8. Role Playing – Invite other people to come in and review, or just read your work.

9. Includes a screen that organizes all of your documents for you by a certain criteria of your choosing such as author or file size.
There are actually several more features, and the fact that all usual keyboard commands found in Word an such work, and whats even better is that it is still fairly new, but more features have been confirmed to continuously flow in.
