Like a Plodding Tortoise Poised to Win, Google Docs Adds .docx, .xlsx Support

google-docs-logoI just got word that Google added .xlsx and .docx file format support to Google Docs, making the online document application more useful to folks using recent versions of Microsoft Office (s MSFT) . Zoho Writer already supported .docx, so while this isn’t ground-breaking territory, it is important. Google and others continue to slowly chip away at the operating system and productivity empire Microsoft (s MSFT) has amassed over the years. Android and Google Docs might not be household names in the enterprise, but from a consumer perspective, the shift is on.
