Google Docs Chrome Extension
Google Docs, a word processor that could beat Microsoft Word.
You won’t be surprised by the app’s interface since Google Docs retains the sleek, minimalist look of Microsoft Word: white space, rounded page elements, and muted colors. You can easily access popular fonts, use ready-made templates, and embed hyperlinks, images, and other media.

Doctor in the clouds
You can’t talk about Google Docs without mentioning Google Drive. The file storage and support service allows users to organize and share files on their servers. You can store up to 15 gigabytes of files on the cloud platform. You can also create files through your office suite apps: Google Sheets, Google Slides, and Google Docs. So say goodbye to downloading other productivity software.
The downside here? You must have a WiFi connection if you want to create documents on this web-based storage application. But if it’s any consolation, Google Docs compensates for this flaw by offering users offline mode for already created documents. No WiFi connection required to access and edit documents. However, remember that the changes you make will not be used until you establish an internet connection. So for documents that have more than one built-in editor, go online if you want revisions updated for everyone to see.
In your hands
Google Docs is available online on your PC, as well as in the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. But, it is a standalone application. You’ll need to download the Google Drive and Google Docs apps, which is a bit of a hassle. However, if you have data and are online, both apps will work just fine.
Where can this program be run?
You can access Google Docs through popular web browsers, such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari. However, this only applies if you are using your desktop computer. Users who want to edit via their smartphone will need to download the Google Docs app on their iOS or Android device.
Is there a better alternative?
It’s hard to think of another online word processor that can compete with Google Docs. A formidable competitor is Dropbox, another online storage service, which recently launched Dropbox Paper.
