GMAIL to become available offline in 6 weeks
Gears is one of the lesser known technologies from Google but people who live in the cloud have found it invaluable to bridge the divide between offline and online applications. The technology enables offline functionality in Gears-enabled web applications, meaning you can continue to use both web application and your online content while you are not connected to the Internet. The search giant currently offers offline functionality in Reader and Google Docs but Gmail and Google Calendar are next.
Gmail and Google Calendar will add offline support in approximately six weeks. Some users have already seen the offline option "accidentally" turned on in Google Calendar. Gmail is to receive offline functionality in the same time frame as Google Calendar. According to sources close to Google, the feature will enable you to mark messages for offline viewing and editing and you will be able to compose new messages in offline mode. Next time you connect to the Internet, all changes will be synchronized and messages created in offline mode will be delivered to recipients.
