Adobe Buzzword

Adobe Buzzword is a free, Web-based word processor similar to Google Docs in which document s are created, edited and stored online. Files can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection and a full-featured Web browser . Buzzword is the creation of Virtual Ubiquity, a company based in Waltham, Massachusetts. Adobe acquired Virtual Ubiquity in October 2007.

Visually, Buzzword resembles Microsoft Word. A streamlined interface allows the user to create, edit, revise and format text, use multiple font s, take advantage of keyboard shortcuts, insert images and export files into Microsoft Word. Text can be composed and moved so it flows around images and tables. One of the most significant features of Buzzword is called WYSIWYP , an acronym for "what you see is what you print," coined after WYSIWYG . The WYSIWYP feature is intended to resolve a problem that has plagued users of word processors ever since computers replaced typewriters: printouts often differ from their on-screen counterparts.

Buzzword's online nature gives it noteworthy advantages and disadvantages. The application can be ideal for collaborative projects in which multiple authors work together from geographically diverse locations. Because documents are stored online and can also be stored on users' computers, there is no risk of total data loss as a result of a localized catastrophe. However, the Internet-based nature of the program has given rise to concerns among some authors that their work may not be private or secure.
