Updates to Google Docs

My favorite Web 2.0 implementation, Google Docs and Spreadsheets, has a fresh new look today.

For more on the updates, see the Google blog, Google Operating System, and Google Blogoscoped.

The developers improved the home screen for Google Docs, implemented folders (instead of tags), integrated Encyclopedia Britannica, and changed all the icons and the favicon.

But, there are several theorized improvements still missing in this great tool, including offline support (with Google Gears) and a presentation application.

In the mean time, I’ll still keep using Google Docs and Spreadsheets. It still has support for the OpenDocument formats.
