I received an email this morning from an Aravind (a Market Analyst for the Zoho range of products & services apparently).
Aravind asked me to test the Beta of Zoho Writer, an online word processor. I tried it out and wasn’t too impressed!
I have tried and written about online word processors previously and both Writely and WriteBoard are significantly better than Zoho Writer in one very important respect – both worked flawlessly on the Mac!
Zoho Writer fails miserably on the Mac (Firefox and Safari)!
Aravind, if you are going to ask someone to review your product, ensure it works on their preferred platform before you pitch it to them!

We apologize about the bad experience on the Mac. We are working on supporting Firefox on the Mac. It should be supported shortly.
I tried Writely on Safari, but it doesn’t seems to work (its not working)
Rodriges – true, but it does work very well in Firefox on the Mac.
“We’ve tried really hard to work around the issues with Safari, but we’ve hit the limit of what we can do on our end. If any of you would like to remind Apple that we’re still waiting, we wouldn’t mind.”

I also got a similiar email asking me to look at items as well. I posted my results (http://blog.monkeywork.net/?p=150) and was wondering if you’d like to chime in on the findings
