Zoho Writer Offline

The latest lovechild of the Zoho-Google cuddlefest is an offline capacity for Zoho Writer [1]. After installing Google Gears [2] (see my post on Understanding RIA) [3], you’ll see that there’s an offline button that appears in your Zoho Writer toolbar. According to an information video [4], this currently lets you download 15 documents to be read — but not edited — offline. A full editing, document creation function is to be added in about a month’s time.

All of which is cool for two groups of people, I guess: the advantaged (or driven), who fly a lot and are, thus, unconnected a lot, and the disadvantaged who crawl to the internet painfully on dialup lines and need to minimize their online time.
