Zoho: A legitimate office-software alternative?

ZohoSaturdays at CPA Success are usually spent reviewing online tools that can help increase our productivity. Keep in mind that we do not endorse any of these services. We simply offer them up for your consideration. Do your own homework and find the service that best meets your needs.

Have you heard of Zoho?

Until recently, I hadn't, either. But I've heard people talking about it on three separate occasions in the past month, so I figured I'd better find out more about it.

It's an online alternative to Microsoft Office and Google Docs. Zoho features Web-based versions of all your favorite business software -- word processing, spreadsheets, slideshows, wikis, organizers, chat, project management, CRM, invoicing, databases and, yes, even e-mail.

If you've tried it, let us know what you think. Is it comparable to the more popular office software? Or, is there another alternative that's just as good ... if not better?
