While browsing the Google Docs blog I found an interesting piece about two updates that have already been posted in this year. The less significant, although probably better update if you want to organize yourself is the ability to add sub-folders. For me this was a much awaited feature since no matter how many tags and other organizational stuff I can add, a good folder structure is always a must.
The more flashy update is the ability to embed your Google Docs presentations into any webpage. It works much like the YouTube videos, where you can embed your own video, or even someone else's if you copy-paste the embed link.
The technology looks and feels much the same, you can click on menu and you'll find the embed link, along with a link to view the presentation in full glory on the Google Docs page. I think it still needs a bit of polishing, especially on the looks side, but at least they're listening to their users. This may not be the most beautiful update, but it's usable and works.
Google Docs has been updated several times since the first release of the feature. To use it now, you need to do the following.
