Google Opens Wave To Everyone [latimesblogs.latimes.com]
Google is opening up Wave to everyone, the company said at its developers conference in San Francisco Wednesday.
It introduced Wave last year at Google I/O as a new tool for communicating and collaborating over the Web to a wave of over-the-top hype that soon came crashing down because the product was slow and buggy.
But Google says it has worked out the kinks and itís inviting everyone to try it.
Wave is an application that runs in a Web browser. It creates a shared online desktop where two or more people can easily interact, whether exchanging messages, sharing and editing documents or playing games.
Itís part of Googleís push to convince developers that Internet browsers are a powerful platform for building even complex applications.
