I wanted to try out the Microsoft Office online as I think this is the first time Micorsoft is giving a try out facility for its office products online. Microsoft is so much succumbed to its propreitary theory that when you try out the office online demo in your Firefox browser, you are shown the message that, the demo can only be viewed only in Internet Explorer 6.0 or later version.
