The advent of widely available broadband connections has opened up a whole new world of web based applications that allow you to do many of the things you would have traditionally used a software package online without the need to buy or install the software on your PC.
Up until now the alternatives to PowerPoint have been limited but all that is about to change.
I saw a demo of a new package called Sliderocket which looks amazing. It hasn’t launched yet and is still in the testing phase but I think you will want to keep you eye on it.
Imagine never having to travel with your laptop in order to give a presentation again. Just develop it online, and just ask your host to have a projector and computer on hand with a fast broadband connection. You can then just fire up the browser, sign in to Sliderocket and off you go. Stunning graphics, slick, easy to use visual effects and no more boring PowerPoint!
