Google hopes to make printing from anywhere and any application — including “web apps” — simple using Google Cloud Print. Printing from a browser typically includes many things that clutter the printout such as navigation bars and advertisements. In the case of web applications, parts of the document may also be missing if scrolling is required. Google Cloud Print promises to allow web applications such as Google Docs — or even conventional applications — to print “properly”. Furthermore, Google will keep the software for your printer up to date (although you’ll still need to make sure the printer is properly configured to use Google Cloud Print). Sounds like a good idea, doesn’t it? Maybe on the surface.
