Hi :)
Afaik there are no plans to make LibO into Cloud based apps.  Recently there
was an announcement that work was starting on making LibreOffice available
to directly install on certain mobile devices but it is expected to take
months or years to complete.   So, it's likely we would have noticed
something about going to the Cloud.  

One of our supporters is Google and they already have an office suite that
is entirely Cloud based and which likes to use the same file-formats as
LibreOffice.  So, on a tablet (or whatever) you can edit a document using
Google-docs that was originally created in LibreOffice, NeoOffice, Symphony
or even OpenOffice.  Or create in Google-docs and then edit with LibreOffice
or whatever.  Each project attempts to get closer and closer to the agreed
ODF standards that they drew-up together.   If you use the older ODF
standard then MS Office 2007 & 2010 can happily edit too.  

There is a portable version available at
but this is to install LibreOffice on a usb-stick / memory card or whatever
so that you can use LibreOffice on any Windows machine without having to
install LO to machines that may not be completely under your control. 
Useful for workplaces, cyber-cafes, showing off to friends etc etc.  

So, there is a LOT of flexibility about ODF documents even tho LibO itself
is not making itself subject to the whims of internet connection speeds and
download/upload limits.

Regards from
Tom :)
