Google is going to release the beta version of their new web application called Google Wave tomorrow to about 10,000 testers and it looks to be a very cool tool for both business and personal use. The Wave was developed by the Rasmussen brothers of Australia, who developed Google Maps.
The Wave is a communication application that allows multiple users to communicate in real time and see what each person is typing. The users can edit documents from the same screen and others can see the changes simultaneously providing a much more efficient communication tool for business and personal use.
Another interesting use of the Wave application is to embed it in a web site, as Google says, “dropping in a Wave”. There are bugs to be worked out but it looks like a fantastic application that will give email a run for its money.
