Google Adds Shared Folders To Docs

Good news for people using Google Docs to share or collaborate on documents: Google today has added folder sharing and multiple document uploading to its popular suite of web-based document and spreadsheet apps.

There's not much to getting up and going with shared folders. Either right-click a folder and select Share or go to a folder and select the Share this folder drop-down to invite people. They've also improved their file upload tool to support uploading multiple documents in one go — provided you're sharing documents within their supported types. Images, Word documents, PDFs, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations work like a charm; I tried uploading a plain text Greasemonkey script, for example, and it was rejected, so while Docs has almost opened the door for regular old file hosting and sharing, it's still got its limitations.
