After months of testing, Microsoft announced today that they will be bringing Microsoft Office to the web as well as to their smart phones reports the NY Times.

According to the report, there will be four lightweight components of Office that will be brought to the web. “The four components are Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. They will become available when the next version of Office, code-named “Office 14,” arrives late next year,” reports the Times.

The pros to Microsoft Office being online versus its competitors such as Google Docs is that meta-data and formatting will not get “munged up” as other non-Microsoft competitors’ services do. Also, Office Web should provide a superior “end to end solution” by letting users edit their documents whereever they want (Firefox, IE, etc).
