"No application today exists in isolation, especially Web 2.0 applications like iNetWord. The easier it is to integrate with other applications and content the more valuable a Web 2.0 application like iNetWord is."

iNetWord development is led by Tom Snyder, whose 10 years at Microsoft -- where he worked on products such as C 6.0, Windows Help system, Microsoft Publisher '95 and '97, and Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0, the first DHTML browser -- gave him an in-depth understanding of programming systems that has enabled him to build one of the most responsive and satisfying Ajax (browser-based) applications.
