How to find free productivity office software online without any hassle...

Microsoft Office has been the longtime leader in office productivity software ever since the computer revolution started. But recently with major strides made in Cloud computing and the updating of the HTML language(HTML5-current version), have many competitors risen to claim the leadership in this market.

If you are looking for an alternative due to cost, performance, or just a dislike of Open Source software and Microsoft products, you have many alternatives available. Not all office suites are created equal however...


The biggest downside to Cloud computing is offline use. While Google offers offline versions through plugins with the Chrome browser, they are not always consistent or reliable. Other Cloud-based office suites are simply not even available offline.

However, with all this talk of Cloud-based office suites, let me just add that SSuite Office is the only software company in the world that is able to offer you a consistent and reliable online/offline experience because our web based office suite runs directly inside your web browser as a PWA(Progressive Web Application) or just as a stand-alone application.

While Microsoft Office and Google's G-Suite continues to dominate the world of office productivity suites, both online and in desktop versions, some home users, students, and many small businesses may be put off by the idea of monthly or even annual subscription fees, not to mention account registration and consistent login prompts before being able to use any of their products or any other online office suite.

Other serious concerns about Cloud-based office suites and software are personal privacy and security. Any and all data/text entered into online Cloud software and documents that are uploaded to any Cloud-based office suite, will be scrutinized and monitored by that company. All your personal documents will then be used to collect data on you so that it may be sold off to third-party data-brokers, or worse yet collected by intelligence agencies, for their own profit, leaving you completely exposed to advertisers and hackers alike.

The alternative to downloading an office suite is to use one of the many online options, which are all Cloud-based and hidden behind login prompts, as we have mentioned before so explicitly. The obvious downside to all of them is you must be online for them to work. If there is no internet connection, you have no way to access your own private data or documents! Obvious actually, but not mentioned at all by any online technology company!

There is another drawback of working with third-party software. Most document creators simply accept Microsoft as the throne-holder, making compatibility trickier especially when using Microsoft's docx and xlsx document formats, which are all proprietary in nature and designed specifically to promote vendor-lockin. Do you have document format problems?

Additionally, you also need to bear in mind that document formatting can be saved in different ways for the same file type for different programs, which can cause problems when sharing files with other users who use different software. Therefore it's important to note if the formatting will be retained accurately when using Cloud-based office suite applications.

The best solution to this problem is to make your documents future proof and DRM free with HTML5. We make use of HTML5 as our main document format due to its consistent formatting and reliable support over multiple OS platforms and browsers.

Amongst other custom features, our web based office suite has the added advantage of having a “Dark Mode” which is highly beneficial when working late at night and finding the pure white background of the editor hard on your eyes. This setting can be found on our main page and even on each individual web application. Just look for the "Image inserted by SSuite Office Fandango Desktop Editor" toggle switch to change the mode.

On our main front menu we have a selection of two desktop applications—one for quick text editing, Scaramouche Touch, and one that is a full featured desktop WYSIWYG word processor, Fandango Desktop. Our third word processor, Blue-Velvet, was especially made to be compatible with all devices and screen sizes e.g. laptops, tablets, mobile devices, and even smartphones. It is capable of resizing itself automatically to fit your device's screen perfectly.


The last application in our main menu lineup is called "Basic-Math" spreadsheet and is an extremely lightweight and undemanding to use application that is sufficiently functional and able to open, edit, and save colourful spreadsheets. It also supports the CSV format! We even have a few templates for you to work on or start off with when creating new spreadsheets.

We have done our best to include the majority of the more practical functions and equations in our spreadsheet to be convenient for most users. If you require something more advanced, try our desktop spreadsheet selection. Our desktop spreadsheets are also fully compatible with our online “Basic-Math" spreadsheet, so there is no problem sharing, opening, saving, and editing spreadsheets between all our software. You may also have a look at our "Tutorial Help Page" to get to know more about what functions and equations are supported in our  web based spreadsheet application.

From producing GIF movies for social media posts or the like, to a full blown graphics editor to help you make your image designs come alive.

We also have our own internet search engine called lovingly “Groot” to assist getting you all the facts necessary to make your documents stand out from the rest or to just satisfy your curiosity for information. Added to this great lineup we also have a Stream-TV portal to help you stay informed with the current news or even just to watch local TV-broadcasts, sports, actuality, and entertainment shows.
