By now many of you have heard that Google has a new web-based spreadsheet product called Google Spreadsheets. I heard about it yesterday, and immediately went to sign-up. It is a closed beta, so I filled in my email address to ask for an invitation, and a few hours later I had one:
Thanks for signing up to use Google Spreadsheets! Your Google account associated with this email address (XXXXXXXX@gmail.com) has been activated, so you can begin sharing spreadsheets on the web!
Please access Google Spreadsheets at this link (you may need to sign on): https://www.google.com/accounts/ServiceLogin?service=wise&

I’ve logged in and played with it a bit, and it seems quite impressive. It doesn’t have all the same advanced features of Excel, but for basic functionality it is excellent.
