Adobe Intros Buzzword online word processor and screen sharing

Today, Abobe announced their entry to the online office suite, Adobe Buzzword. Buzzword is full featured, online word processor that allows you to create and share documents with other Internet users. It also contains links to Adobe ConnectNow, a fee-based screen sharing application that allows you to hold conferences with up to 15 people. A 3-person demo of ConnectNow is currently offered on a trial basis.



Documents are saved to a user's online file storage area but can also be printed, saved as Adobe PDF files or exported to a number of formats including MS Word.

Using Adobe's Flash plugin as its core, Buzzword has lots of flashy visual effects when changing modes and editing your document. That said, I also found it to work solidly on both Windows and Mac computers an it supports a number of useful features including styles, tables, picture import and positioning and more.
