Collaborative Writing on the Web

Trying to find a better way to collaborate with your co-author on a novel, business proposal or career-ending angry letter to your boss?

All you need is one of the several supported web browsers. Here is a comparison of the two applications, thanks to TidBITS.

Thanks, Bill. I think it's an awesome idea, and just happen to be working on an outline with a partner, so this will be awesome for outlining. Thanks for posting it.

I got accepted as a beta tester, and my writing partner and I are using it to hash out a decent outline. (As she noted, it would have taken us months to get as far as we got today.)
