Google Docs Becoming Web Version of Microsoft Word 2003

I don’t know if the Google Docs developers are intentionally doing it or is it really the way to develop Google Docs into a full-blown web based desktop applciation? Google Operating System has spotted  new changes in the Google Docs interface that would somehow  remind you of the old Microsoft Word 2003 interface.

More particularly, the tabbed interface now shows traditional menus in Microsoft Word 2003 which include File, Edit, Insert, Format, Tools, and Table. These six main menus contain various functions that were present in the old version of Microsoft Word.

Google Docs also added the Share drop-down menu for sharing a page, web publishing and previewing the documents created by users. Incidentally, the Google Docs developers have return the Save and Save as option which was previously removed from the upper right hand corner of the Google Docs main page. The two options were brought back  due to complaints from Google Docs users who have grown accustomed  to seeing those buttons outright when creating their documents.

Looks like Google Docs is gearing up for future major developments and making its interface more Microsoft Word like is just but one way to make the users get used to using it.
