Google announced recently that Google Docs and Gmail will now have offline functionality again. "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." The functionality is through a Chrome webapp, but should still be as good as before, maybe even better. You can read the post about it on Google's blog.
