Over at Lifehack.org, Leo Babauta has a post titled Firefox OS: Why My Hard Drive & Software are Obsolete.
He’s got a lot of good points to make. I’m not ready to go totally web-based just yet. For academic writing, citations are essential, and Google Docs doesn’t play nicely when it comes to creating them just yet. Google Docs and Zotero don’t know how to play well together, either. That said, Google Docs handles citations from imported Word docs just fine, so it’s a good way to back up my work.
Nearly all my other word processing and spreadsheet needs I handle directly in Google Docs and Spreadsheets. It seems to work better for me than Zoho’s suite.
For now, I’m still using Google Notebook for collecting web research, but I’d like to see some major improvements to it. I’m really looking forward to the release of Zoho Notebook. It will be interesting to see what Google does to keep up.
