Firfox 3 Will Support Offline Apps

Robert O’Callahan from Mozilla, who is based in NZ but drives the rendering engine of Mozilla/FireFox, spoke about how Firefox 3 will deliver support for offline applications. This is significant because you’ll be able to use your web apps – like Gmail, Google Docs & Spreadsheets, Google Calendar, etc – in the browser even when offline. I deliberately mentioned all Google web apps there, because of course this plays right into Google’s hands.

Firefox 3 To Support Offline Apps

This is important because it will allow for the development of applications that use the same interfaceeither on or off the net.  A separate desktop application will not be needed.  Imagine just turning on your PC and getting work done:)
