Oskar Almazan's curator insight, December 1, 8:02 PM
A word processor requires very little—a blank page, typography tools, and a way to save, print, or share your finished documents. The earliest word processors like Word for DOS and WordPerfect offered little more than that. An update here, a new version there, and 30+ years later, word processors offer an embarrassment of riches with more tools than can fit in Word's tabbed toolbars. Google Docs took a simpler road, with a simple collection of core document formatting features bundled with its world-class collaboration tools. This makes it perfect for simpler documents worked on in groups, but should you want to do anything beyond collaborative word-processing, you may find yourself going back to Word and its many sub-menu functions. That's where add-ons come in.
