Google definitely has alot of tricks rolled up their sleeves, the upcoming Google Chrome OS announced last two weeks ago, which they target to roll out prebundled with netbooks next year. Here is an upcoming online tool that I’m anxious to try – Google Wave which was announced earlier and planned to be released within this year.
Quoted from Google:
Google Wave is a new tool for communication and collaboration on the web
How does it work?
In Google Wave you create a wave and add people to it. Everyone on your wave can use richly formatted text, photos, gadgets, and even feeds from other sources on the web. They can insert a reply or edit the wave directly. It’s concurrent rich-text editing, where you see on your screen nearly instantly what your fellow collaborators are typing in your wave. That means Google Wave is just as well suited for quick messages as for persistent content â€” it allows for both collaboration and communication. You can also use “playback” to rewind the wave and see how it evolved.
Being a freelance web designer and developer this kind of tool is something I can use, Currently I use BaseCamp for Project Management and like it.
