WordPerfect Lightning is available for download, free in the beta version.

Remember: “beta” software is being tested.  It may have problems in working properly, on saving your work, or in other functions.  It also may be withdrawn at the company’s discretion.  It may stop working at the end of a specified or yet-to-be-determined period.  Use at your own risk.

From the site’s FAQ page: “Corel WordPerfect Lightning is a new kind of free word processing and note-taking software from Corel that fills a gap between today’s existing desktop and Web-based productivity tools. Corel WordPerfect Lightning provides a simple set of tools that make it fast and easy to perform your most common productivity tasks. WordPerfect Lightning makes it easier than ever before to capture, use and reuse the ideas, information and images that are important to you. Use it to capture your notes, read documents, easily collect information and images, and create, edit and collaborate on a wide variety of document types. You can even use WordPerfect Lightning as a fast and simple organizer for all your ideas and documents. It’s like a word processor, notebook, whiteboard and filing cabinet wrapped into one.”

“WordPerfect Lightning is under 20 MB in size and downloads in minutes. Lightning will launch automatically once your download is complete. When you download Lightning, you’ll also have the option to download a free trial version of Corel WordPerfect Office X3, so when you need the capabilities of a full-featured office suite, it will be on your system, free, for you to try. Also free is your own WordPerfect Lightning Online Account, giving you an online workspace where you can store your WordPerfect Lightning content, share emails, contacts, bookmarks, back up files and do much more—all for free.”

“This part is really simple—you don’t need a browser to use WordPerfect Lightning. It’s a new, light, standalone application that works with or without an Internet connection. If you want to collaborate online, you do need a browser—Firefox 1.5 or later is recommended—but WordPerfect Lightning Online is compatible with Firefox, Internet Explorer 7 or Safari 2.0.4 or later. As long as you are running a modern JavaScript-enabled Web browser, you can use the online resources that we are providing through our partners.”
