Microsoft released its Office Web Apps but there was a problem about its usage, as initially they were only compatible with Windows platform and with Internet Explorer browser. But you might have observed in your daily life that people have different Platforms to browse on internet.
If Microsoft stuck to a single platform then it might be impossible for the Microsoft to facilitate the users. In this post I will be telling you about the solution which has been opted by Microsoft in order to provide the access of Web Apps to maximums of the users.
Now the Apps are compatible with Safari on Mac, Mozilla Firefox on Windows, Linux and Mac, Internet Explorer on Windows. So, they have increased the platform for the usage of their web Apps, though Microsoft tried to cover many of the browsers but they did not cover Google Chrome (which is one of the emerging browsers these days).

Google introduced at the end of last week a new tool called GoogleCL. It runs from the command-line (yes, the Linux terminal), and allows users to post, create, list or delete photos from an existing Picasa account, videos from a YouTube account, edit, list or upload documents from your Google Docs account, add, delete or list events from Google Calendar or post on your Blogger weblog.

Make notes, text messages, and address book entries easier to read by making the font bigger.

Internet Explorer has been a distant third-string player to Firefox and Chrome for so long, we thought it could never catch up.
But with a slick new interface and enhanced Windows 7 features, IE 9 now in public beta just might put Microsoft back at the top of the browser game.
For the past four years, I’ve sung the praises of Firefox, going so far as recommending it in all of my books. I’ve used Firefox and, more recently, Google’s Chrome almost exclusively.
