Microsoft Corp. revealed an online version of its two-decade old Office software suite on Tuesday, The Globe and Mail reports. The move is the world’s largest software company’s biggest step into cloud computing, or the delivery of software over the web. Microsoft aims to take a stand against Google, which has stolen a small percentage of its corporate customers with cheaper, web-only software alternatives. Customers will be able to use Office applications such as Outlook, Excel and SharePoint on mobile devices and wherever a web connection is available.
