Writely was a web-based word processor created by the software company Upstartle and launched in August 2005. It began as an experiment by programmers Sam Schillace, Steve Newman and Claudia Carpenter, trying out the then-new Ajax technology and the "content editable" function in browsers.
Google Spreadsheets, first launched as a limited test on Google Labs on June 6, 2006,originated from the product XL2Web by 2Web Technologies, which was acquired by Google in June 2005.
On March 9, 2006, Google announced that it had acquired Up startle. Whitely closed registration to its service until the move to Google servers was complete. In August 2006, Whitely sent account invitations to everyone who had requested to be placed on a waiting list, and then became publicly available on August 23. Whitely continued to maintain its own user system until September 21, 2006, when it was integrated with Google Accounts.
Meanwhile, Google developed Google Spreadsheets using the technology it had acquired from 2Web Technologies in 2005 and launched Google Labs Spreadsheets on June 6, 2006, as the first public component of what would eventually become Google Sheets. It was initially made available to only a limited number of users, on a first-come, first-served basis. In September 2007, Google released a presentation program for Google Docs, which originated from the company's acquisition of Tonic Systems on April 17, 2007.In July 2009, Google dropped the beta testing status from Google Docs.
In January 2010, Google Docs started allowing users to upload any file type up to 250 MB, with 1 GB of free space and paid storage available for $0.25 per GB per year. This cloud storage feature was eventually reworked when Google Drive was introduced in 2012. Google Drive now serves as the cloud storage service from Google, while Docs, Sheets and Slides serve as the office suite inside Google Drive.
However, later the same month, security consultant Ade Barkah wrote on his blog about security issues with the software suite. Issues included that embedded images in private documents could be viewed publicly on the Internet (even after document deletion); when users got access to a document that included a diagram (a new feature at the time), the new user could see any previous version of the diagram (including any sensitive information that was removed before sharing); and in some scenarios, users who had access rights removed from a document could still access the document without the owner's knowledge. Google released a statement that it takes "the security of our users’ information very seriously", but "based on the information we’ve received, we do not believe there are significant security issues with Google Docs". The statement finished with, "We will share more information as soon as it’s available.
