Google Docs going offline soon?

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 12:21 pm

Looks like Google is hard at work on offline access to Google Docs. Google Blogoscoped has screenshots of what looks like the beginnings of such a service.

No doubt Google will try to enable offline access for all of its Web apps. This was pretty apparent when the company announced Google Gears last May. Google Gears is a browser plug-in that lets people run Web applications even when they are not connected to the Internet. The Blogoscoped screenshots appear to be the first public evidence of such testing.

In response to questions, a Google representative said: “We’re working on enabling many of our applications to work with Google Gears, but we don’t have anything more specific to share at this time.”
