Google Inc. said Wednesday it will shut down Google Wave, a Web-based program that lets people chat, share files and collaborate on documents in real time.

In a blog post, Google said Wave "set a high bar for what was possible in a Web browser." The Web search and software company pointed to the ability to drag files from a computer desktop into the Web application and to see what someone else was typing as they typed it, character by character.

"Wave has not seen the user adoption we would have liked," said Google senior vice president Urs Holzle in a blog post.

Google said it will maintain the Google Wave site at least through the end of the year, and its technology will find its way into other Google projects. Parts of the code are already available as open source.
