Google adds to Online Office Suite

Without much fanfare, Google Sites went live early this morning.

The collaborative website 'easy creation tool' is now part of Google apps online, a growing suite of web-based business tools.

This is, in fact, a direct competitor to Microsoft's Office Live which began offering free websites, online collaboration, and a (somewhat buggy) online website creation tool last year.

A similar but much less robust offering from Google know as Google Page Creator has been available free for some time, as well as enterprise e-mail using GMail.
