The application features MenuTabs, a new interface that uses tabbed menus to streamline the user experience.
"Zoho Writer 2.0 represents a major overhaul of our user interface," said "Zoho evangelist" Raju Vegesna. "We set out to improve users' productivity, fine tune the application, and establish a consistent user interface across the entire Zoho suite. We believe we have achieved these three goals in Writer 2.0."
The new interface is set to be copied by other Zoho online on-demand productivity applications.
Previously, Zoho Writer displayed all commands at once via a three-row toolbar. However, as functionality was quickly added, the user interface became crowded, said Zoho.
The MenuTab design streamlines the toolbar with tabbed menus that not only intuitively organise commands in context-based groups, but also provide quick access to commands in other tabs. With this system, users get menus and tabs.
