Buzzworld: Not the Real Web-Based Word Processor...

Buzzworld:

The First Real Web-Based Word Processor

buzzword

Adobe's flash based online word processor - Buzzworld claims to be The First Real Web-Based Word Processor, but it failed in many count. Firstly, it is not UNICODE compliant. At least, it had not displayed Unicode Hindi content, and you cannot input Hindi Unicode matter in to it. Any Real Web app must be Unicode compliant these days.

 

Further, it is very slow in loading and response - even with my broadband connection. Other Online wordprocessor, once loaded work well unless they are downloading/uploading something.

 

IMHO, Buzzworld is not the Real, let alone the First!

Yeh, it seems. Some people in India are actually using COW DUNG not only to charge and power up their mobile devices, but to illuminate their surroundings during night hours! You can read about this in BBC Hindi article here.
