For those feeling adventurous, LibreOffice is testing version 5.3 of its software, the version that presents a new user interface that is a nod to Microsoft’s Ribbon-like Microsoft Office look.

If you are looking for a Microsoft Office replacement kit, you should probably look no further than LibreOffice. The option of having a similar level of quality while dumping extra costs seems appealing not only to normal users but to commercial and corporate entities as well. With the implementation of the ribbon-like UI which groups together all toolbars, LibreOffice has gotten one step closer to being a complete Microsoft Office replica. This change was long expected by consumers who were first promised it in 2015.

It was only in the 2010 version of Microsoft Office that integrated all its tools under a the Ribbon-based user interface, with the rest being added to Word, PowerPoint, Access and Excel. Over time, additional Microsoft Windows content was revamped to use the Ribbon UI.

Using Microsoft’s Office suite was facilitated with the release of the 2007 version which first featured the Office ribbon. Facilitating use also meant improving productivity with the suite, something Microsoft is all about with its Fluent UI. The highlight of this UI is the way all the toolbars were grouped.

What used to be a combination of multiple toolbars is now represented by a single toolbar which houses multiple tabs, each with its own options and settings. This helps users by offering the additional and side features in an accessible manner without losing track of the important ones that are a core necessity in working with the software.
