Google ate Microsoft's lunch by offering its cloud-based Google Docs / Google Drive for free and getting into a territory that was Microsoft's cash cow. Microsoft now offers Office Online that includes online versions of popular applications in the desktop Office suite.
Some of the web applications were available earlier as well but now they are under a single umbrella. What's more, there are also APIs
for programmers to extend these services.
