    Now Use Gmail, Calendar and Docs without an Internet connection


    It is a great news for all who use Google services. You can use Gmail, Calender and Google Docs without an Internet connection. Being without internet is a rare thing and if it happens, it is a big pain and frustrating.

    When we announced Chromebooks at Google I/O 2011, we talked about bringing offline access to our web apps, and now we’re taking our first steps in that direction. Gmail offline will be available today, and offline for Google Calendar and Google Docs will be rolling out over the next week, starting today.

    It is achieved using Chrome Web Store app and Google Gears.

    Gmail Offline is a Chrome Web Store app that’s intended for situations when you need to read, respond to, organize and archive email without an internet connection. This HTML5-powered app is based on the Gmail web app for tablets, which was built to function with or without web access. After you install the Gmail Offline app from the Chrome Web Store, you can continue using Gmail when you lose your connection by clicking the Gmail Offline icon on Chrome’s “new tab” page.

    Google Calendar and Google Docs let you seamlessly transition between on- and offline modes. When you’re offline in Google Calendar, you can view events from your calendars and RSVP to appointments. With Google Docs you can view documents and spreadsheets when you don’t have a connection. Offline editing isn’t ready yet, but we know it’s important to many of you, and we’re working hard to make it a reality. To get started using Google Calendar or Google Docs offline, just click the gear icon at the top right corner of the web app and select the option for offline access.

    1. Does that have anything to do with “The Cloud” that everyone is talking about today, some kind of virtual server? Or is it somehow possible to connect Google’s services to that?
