Google[4] Docs is a web-based application developed by Google that provides users with a platform to create, edit, and store documents online. The software originated from Writely, a standalone web-based word processor, before being acquired by Google in 2006. It supports real-time collaboration, allowing multiple users to view and edit documents simultaneously. Google Docs is compatible with various browsers such as Google Chrome[1], Firefox, Microsoft[2] Edge, and Safari, and can also be accessed through its dedicated mobile app[3] for Android and iOS[6] devices. Additionally, it facilitates offline editing on the Chrome browser and features automatic saving for uninterrupted work. Google Docs has been praised for its user-friendly interface and innovative features like the Explore function, but has faced criticism for being less powerful than desktop-based suites. Despite a few security[5] issues in the past, Google has promptly addressed them, making it a reliable tool for document management.
