  • Microsoft unveils browser-based Office apps

    Surprisingly, Office Web applications run in Firefox and Safari, not just Internet Explorer. Far less shocking: You won't get Office Web apps free and clear as you do Google apps. According to Senior Communications Director Janice Kapner, the pricing details have yet to be worked out, but she expects that an advertising-supported version will be available through Office Live, with volume licensing and subscription-based options for business customers.
