ThinkFree Office

Freshness Warning
This article is over 13 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current.

I posted earlier about the troubles I had signing up for ThinkFree Office. I’ve been using the site (or is that software...?) today to edit a few documents and I’m impressed. The simple ajax editor makes quick text updates easy, and the Java editor allows me to change formatting and layout. All in all, it handles MS Office files with ease and should feel completely comfortable to someone who is familiar with Office.

It probably won’t replace my NeoOffice installation since I do a fair amount of work offline, but so far, so good.

Have you used Zoho? If so, how is ThinkFree in comparison?

ThinkFree feels less cluttered and easier to use. The feature that I'm really excited about (and the reason I'm trying it at all) is the collaboration -- something Zoho doesn't offer.

I'll have to agree with you. ThinkFree is a lot easier to manage, and has a lot more to offer, compared to many of the others, including Zoho, that I've used.
