Project Draw: Another Advancement in Cloud Computing

The photo above is taken from the online vector graphics editor called Project Draw. This program is free, and to save the project all you need to do is set up an account, it may take a maximum of 2 minutes to setup and it requires the use of Google Gears. When compared to desktop based graphics editors, Project Draw is somewhat basic. There are a limited number of shapes present, a few line styles (i.e., dashed, solid etc), line width and colour can be varied, curves can be drawn and connected, and objects can be placed as layers. There a few more features but these are the major ones. Hopefully more advanced editing options will be added and people can move away from their desktop and enter the cloud.
