As of this morning you can take it for a spin at http://spreadsheets.google.com
According to a Google report, Google Spreadsheets is considered to be “alpha” software. The testing will be limited to an invitation only basis only but maybe you’ll be one of the lucky ones? Incase you were wondering, I was picked as one of the lucky prototype testers :)
Something I find very cool about this new application is it makes use of some of Google’s other software, such as Google Talk for online collaboration.
It’s completely web-based which is nice. All you need is a Internet connection and a Web browser – your spreadsheets are stored securely online. You can even save your spreadsheets to your own computer in CSV, XLS and HTML formats.
