Google Docs was launched in 2007 as a cloud-based answer to the Microsoft Office Suite of Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. While Microsoft's applications are still engrained as most people's go-to for their basic office needs, Docs has been gaining ground, both in terms of market share and usability. Now part of the greater Google Drive collective, readers can create, edit, and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. In addition, it's web-based, which leads to important conveniences, like the ability to access documents from different computers or include multiple people when simultaneously drafting a document. Documents save automatically every few seconds, making loss of work nearly impossible, and users can also access revision history to see what changes have been made, when they were made, and by whom. For readers who have heard of Google Docs or Google Drive but haven't put it to full use quite yet, this is a handy and efficient way to tackle projects as a team.
