Things have come a long way since the disaster that was Word for Macintosh 6.0 (hey, Mac users have long memories, what can I say?), and now Microsoft’s new iteration of its Office suite boasts plenty of features and optimisations for OS X .
New features include a Project Centre for keeping track of documents, contacts, notes and emails relating to individual projects and a rather useful Compatibility Report feature for checking if your document is going to appear anything like you intended on a colleagues PC.
Handy features like these are collected together in the new Toolbox, allowing users to access them from inside any Office application.
The version of Internet Explorer is still the somewhat elderly 5.0, but then it’s highly unlikely that MS would ever be able compete with Apple’s own legendary Safari browser.
Office 2004 for Macintosh costs US$399 (€331).
