Hi Techlivez.com readers

thats true mobility ,as i m typing this every 10-30 seconds the online docs are autosaving and thats great you dont have to worry for browser crash or power failure. You can highlight colour with yellow T button
Once you uploaded your documents there comes two options:
Collaborators and viewers:

Collaborators can edit, share, or post a document to their blog.
Although they can’t remove the document owner from the project, they can add or remove other collaborators.
Viewers can see a document, make a copy of it, and save it to their hard drive.
However, they can’t edit the original document.
It also has a function of Revisions :
