Google Docs gets Pivot Tables

Month after month, Google Docs is becoming more and more useful and learning things that will certainly appeal the more advanced users. Now, Google Spreadsheets can create pivot tables.

As Google puts it:
A pivot table report is a dynamic table that lets you interpret data in different ways without ever having to enter a formula. Pivot table reports are particularly useful when you want to narrow down a large data set or analyze relationships between data points.

In just a few clicks, you can summarize and analyze a large set of data through different categorizations and calculations. For example, from a list of students in a college class, you can get a quick understanding of the the age distribution of and number of science majors in the class.
So... what are you waiting for? Are you still using an installable spreadsheet that you can use only in your own PC, when you could be using Google Docs which is accessible via any (decent) web browser?
