Google Docs Goes Offline

Starting from today, you don't need an Internet connection to make Google Docs work for you.

Google Docs team yesterday rolled out an offline editing access to English interface users. With Google Gears working behind the scenes, users will be able to view their docs lists and view and edit documents, all without an Internet connection. You no longer need an Internet connection when inspiration strikes. Whether you're working on an airplane or in a cafe, you can automatically access all your docs on your own computer.

To see how offline access works, watch this video starring Ken Norton, the Google Docs product manager.

While the initial launch is rolling out first to personal Google Docs users, it will launch later to Google Apps domains.
