Use MS Office on your Web browser as Google docs alternative: Quick Review

For an individual person or a group or a company it is very important to have Microsoft Office in the computer as it helps in solving major issues that are associated with making presentations, spreadsheets, revenue models, writing articles, writing research papers, etc. This is a very powerful tool and is widely accepted by all the people around the globe. But, not all people have it because it is not available as free for the users. We have to pay a certain amount so that we purchase the whole MS Office which contains MS PowerPoint, MS Word, MS Excel, MS Access, MS Outlook, and many more important tools. Purchasing this software package is a bit expensive for an individual who wants to use Office to solve his daily needs like a college-going student who wants to make different charts, presentations, reports, etc. and therefore he finds it difficult to access the power of this amazing tool. So, to help overcome this problem there is an alternative to MS Office which is MS Office itself. Sounds confusing right???

This Microsoft Office is actually present in the cloud i.e. people can use the cloud-based services provided by office.com and use it to solve their daily needs. This cloud-based office is the replica of MS Office that comes within Office365. It contains all the necessary tools that are used by any firm to carry out their tasks.

Also, one major thing to note here is that although it helps users to get instant solutions, it is not a permanent solution in the long run. This is because the free version lags many features that are present in the full version of MS Office. To get the full-fledged feeling of MS Office one needs to either purchase Office365 for his computer that comes in different packages both for students and business purposes or needs to access the MS Office cloud version by paying INR 420/month. This in turn also provides 1 TB of storage space in the cloud.
