Visio was created by the Shapeware Corporation and launched in 1992, but the product was acquired by Windows in 2000. This diagramming and vector graphics application is part of the big Microsoft Office family and the company has just released Visio Online in preview, a program which allows users to access the app from any of the seven supported browsers.

By using Visio Online, users are able to view and share Vision diagrams on the web or their files stored on OneDrive. Microsoft noted in a blog post that “The Visio desktop has always been a powerful tool for creating network maps, organizational charts, business processes and more. Visio Online Preview amplifies the power of visual communication by helping teams glean real-time information from diagrams with just a browser—turning your data-linked diagrams into an operational dashboard that more employees can access.”
