It seems too good to be true, but you can use the Office Web Apps with just about any version of Office, or none at all. And to add to the goodness, the Web Apps don't cost a dime. Like peanut butter and jelly, though, the Office Web Apps are better with Office, in particular Office 2010, so you'll have a better experience when you combine the two.
Web Apps integration is built right into Office 2010, you can save your documents directly to SkyDrive from Office and you can access documents stored on SkyDrive from Office 2010 too. To save to SkyDrive, click the File tab in your Office document, click Save & Send, select Save to Web, and then sign in and save the document to the folder you want.
If you want to see how Office 2010 works with the Web Apps but don't have it yet, try Office 2010 for free.
If you have an earlier version of Office, you can upload files to SkyDrive from your PC by clicking the Add files button in SkyDrive.
If you don't have Office, you can still view Office docs using the Web Apps, and you can create and edit Office docs online. The Web Apps are also a great solution if you're collaborating with someone who doesn't have Office. They can still view and edit your documents online without having Office installed.
Web Apps don't have the full functionality of the desktop version of Office, so Office does remain the best choice for creating and editing rich documents. Use the Web Apps for that sweet spot of viewing, sharing, collaborating, and lightweight editing. Try them out and let us know what you think!

How does this work with the Mac platform, e.g., Safari or Mozilla as a browser?
i need to install in my laptop this program if this is free for me
how can install office applications pls?
GOOGLE DOCS STILL THE BEST:
MS search is slow, and inefficient. You can't just open a new tab for the document, the documents are slow, and you can't edit them automatically.
Looking at documents is awkward and slow. In google, you can smoothly zoom, open and save, but not in MS online.
Downloading & printing a document is anything but smooth or easy.
I can not open office web apps in my MS office 2007 versions. Do I need to install windows 7 and office 2010 ?
As someone who cares a lot about programmability in Word, I'm always looking for ways to showcase how powerful our object model is, and how it can be used to build really great solutions. With that in mind, I've been looking into ways to create a Word 2007 version of the Word 2003 Redaction Add-In, as we know that it's been an issue for some of our users that this add-in isn't available for Word 2007.
To that end, I'm really excited to announce the release of an open source Word 2007 Redaction Tool project on CodePlex: www.codeplex.com/redaction.
This isn't something supported by Microsoft, but this updated version of the tool, rewritten for Word 2007, provides the same mark and redact capabilities as the previous tool and now natively integrates with Word 2007. Once installed, it appears as a Redact group on the Review tab:
The current release is a v0.9 Beta release – it's functionally complete but I wanted to get it out there and get some public testing/feedback before I call it "done". If you are interested, please give it a try and provide feedback through the CodePlex site if you encounter bugs/have feature requests/etc. I hope to release an official "v1" version very shortly, based on feedback from users of this Beta version.
This add-in uses the latest versions of VSTOv3 and .NET 3.5, so Setup may require a reboot to install those components.
As an open source project, the code is there for those who want to inspect/change it (contributors are welcome).
This add-in isn't supported by Microsoft; it's something built in response to the clear need demonstrated through the volume of questions we get about the Redaction Tool, and I'll try to work on it as much as I can (but as I said above, the source is there so that you can see/change it if you have a problem).
Creating tools like this one is one of my favorite things to do – it showcases the power of Word and how that doesn't stop with the features that we ship out of the box.
What's Redaction, Anyway?
If you're not familiar with the word, you've probably seen it done – documents with black highlighting over names, places, etc. that's meant to be kept private even if the document itself is made public, e.g.:
The Redaction Tool enables that process of removing specific parts of text (redaction) to occur right from within Word. So I can select the regions of text I don't want in the final document, and press Mark to specify that they should be redacted, like this:
Then, once I've marked everything I want to remove, I can redact the document and the marked regions are replaced. This isn't just highlighting: if I copy out the text into another application, like Notepad, you can see that I cannot get the original test back – it's been replaced with garbage characters:
By doing this, I can release my document but keep the sensitive parts private.
