Google Inc. will begin rolling out it's new online spreadsheet software today to a limited few in a move that sees the web maestros taking on Microsoft's Excel with a completely free alternative.
At 9am EDT the company will begin accepting sign-ups for the new product through it's Google Labs site. The software will be released for public use after the initial product is tested by a limited audience, much like Google's Gmail email service.
Google's key focus for the product is the sharing of information, to ensure friends, family and associates can access the same information from different locations. User-friendliness will be paramount, and this may provide the largest threat to Microsoft.
See the spreadsheet for yourself on Google's sneak-peek of the new software, there's even a sign-up for interest link so you can get your hands on the freebies as soon as possible.
