There's Zoho Writer. It has a decently large feature-set and uses a tabbed interface that takes some inspiration from both MS Office 2007 and traditional menus. I have heard that it preserves the correct formatting in .doc files it can't render properly, but I have not tested this.

Not every document is compatible with Google Docs. The conversion process isn't perfect.

You could try using Google Cloud Connect. I would imagine the commenting would occur within Microsoft Word itself (using the comments feature within Microsoft Word), then once a comment is made the changes are synced with whoever is synced with it. Oh even just use Google Drive or Dropbox to sync and share manually. There is no Google Docs equivalent to ...

The easiest and best option for you, in my opinion, would be the Word Web App or Google Docs, which both offer multi-user editing and version control.

Doesn't look like it there is a way to do so just between Google Docs and Word 2010 for Mac via the official Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft. There may be a 3rd party app that can do the job though. However, that is also unlikely since there isn't any API that is for Mac's version. From Google's Doc Blog (Source) Many of you have also asked about ...

I have found that changing the setting to "Convert uploaded files to Google Docs editor format" allows the files to be converted correctly. This does not explain why conversion of uploaded files fails but it solves my problem for now.

After some investigation and no other answers, the answer seems to be the latest version of Word .docx. I opened an old file and saved it as .docx and it opened on Word Online without conversion. For those of you interested in the code. If you are converting files you need to use the new SaveAs2 function on the document in VBA for the compatibility ...

There doesn't seem to be any built in way, but I have a tool - DocTo that converts word documents to other formats. If you have Word 2010 or later installed, you can use the following commandline with the docto tool to convert all files in a folder on your disk, then once converted upload them to onedrive. "docto.exe" -f "c:\mydocs\" -o ...

You can achieve this by choosing the Google docs which ever you would like to download and then click the drop down list of the "More" button which is available in top of google drive page. Now you can able to find the option "Download" in that drop-down list. You can get a pop-up after once you click the option "Download". In that pop-up you can choose ...

I had a similar issues and found a work around. I can't remember where I got it so apologies for not crediting the source. With this method I created a separate drive folder where the Word document is uploaded to and then a new Google Doc is created alongside it and the text pasted into that. I also had to create a new project in the Google Developers ...

You can try Talk plugin which allows you not only to insert annotations in any point of the page but to establish inline discussions with e-mail notifications. Note: I am affiliated with the Talk plugin.

You can also take a look at Nevron Writer Online. It's a free online text editor, which does not require registration and is much more feature rich than most other web based text editors, because it's written in Silverlight and does not have the limitations of HTML and JavaScript. The only drawback is that it requires the Silverlight plugin installed to ...

Office Web Apps from Microsoft. More info on Wikipedia. This is the same technology behind the Facebook docs service, so I suspect they will be very similar in functionality, except this is tied to your Hotmail or Skydrive account instead of your Facebook account.

There is Docs for Facebook (free!), which is a collaboration between Facebook and Microsoft. See screenshot below for interface:

There's also Book Writer which let's collaborators/editors view content and add notes and changes and is specifically designed for people writing books (I know, there's a hint in the name). It's free and web-based and from the FastPencil people.
