It’s been a while, but since I was last here I’ve changed house and changed jobs, so that’s my excuse. Oh and I’ve also changed laptop, I now have a new, if slightly hot, MacBook Pro. Apple make it very easy to change computers thanks to their Migration Assistant utility. I just plugged my new laptop into the old and all my data, settings and applications were copied. Getting a new machine however did make me once again decide to give Apple’s own Internet apps another go. Last year I switched from using Mail and Safari to using Thunderbird and Firefox instead. But now, I thought, new Mac, another chance to give these ago. I have to say I like the latest version of Mail, and I’m continuing to use it for the time being. I like the clean simple interface and the search system is second to none.
Anyway on the subject of writely.com, check it out, it’s perfect for many routine word processing tasks and have some powerful collaboration features built-in. It can even be used as a weblog post editor. Because it has a spell checker built-in too it makes editing posts using Firefox a pleasant experience. I may never use MS Word again. And if Apple’s listening, unless they fix it I may never use Safari again either.
