Google Docs Goes Offline

I read on an author’s blog the other day that she had an MS Word catastrophe.   I think we’ve all had those at one time or another.   Google docs doesn’t really solve the MS Word catastrophe but it does allow a person to write and edit documents without relying on your own personal computer.   The problem was that you had to be online, connected to the internet, to use Google docs.

Not anymore.   Google Docs is now useable offline.   Any changes that you make while not connected to the internet will automatically be synchronized with the online document once you connect again.   I love this idea and can imagine using Google Docs for more than just blogging and maybe for work as well.

    Okay, this is just bizarre. Way bizarre. Took me like 4 tries to be able to figure out how to post. WEIRD. I think Google docs offline rocks!
