New Google Docs Features (Online Presentations)

I find myself using Google Docs more and more all the time, so when there are new features, I'm quite interested. The latest features available are a presentation application and a Google-specific context menu.

I'm certainly not a fan of Powerpoint (I call it Powerpooper) as I tend to use Keynote anytime I can. But the ability to share a presentation with others, online, and have the capabilities of GoogleTalk is pretty powerful. This is clearly a shot across the bow of companies like Cisco's WebEx and ReadyTalk (though I've used ReadyTalk and it's much, much better than WebEx). You can even use the Presentations offline via Google Gears, nice!
