Google recently upgraded their docs interface and they made big improvements within Google Docs. I have always been comfortable with their word processor, but recently I decided to take the plunge and begin using their spreadsheet doc.
Things seemed to be a bit streamlined and I was okay with the clean, simple interface. My biggest challenge was inserting multiple rows.
