Adobe Acrobat.com launched

Acrobat.comAdobe launched acrobat.com the other day. It’s completely flash based which is a bit of a bummer. I would have liked to see a standards compliant AJAX solution like so many of Google’s applications. The site is still pretty slick, and it will allow people to create documents and collaborate online. There is chat and web cam support too. I can’t see myself using this, I’ll stick with Google Docs for now, but I signed up anyway just to check it out.

The interface is really slick, something that a lot of Google apps are not. You can find more details about it on the official blog post Welcome to Acrobat.com.

Acrobat.com is a suite of online services hosted by Adobe that you can use to create documents together and share them with others. It helps people get document work done faster, without email attachments or version confusion, and it makes your documents look great so that you and your work look great, too.

Some of the comments mention the pressure coming down on Microsoft right now, both from Google and Adobe. There really are alternatives to MS Office now, and that’s always a good thing.
