Will Google Gears Be the Basis for Online/Offline Version of Gmail?

Enabling AJAX in a disconnected scenario could turn Gmail into Web 2.0's Killer App

Google Gears, the open source browser extension – still in beta – that enables web applications to provide offline functionality using JavaScript APIs, might be the key to an upcoming online/offline version of Gmail.

Google Gears specifically allows AJAX web apps to run offline without a net connection. An open source runtime, it allows you to build offline Web applications, so presumably the bright folks at the Googleplex are keen to eat in their own kitchen.

Such, anyway, are the current rumors circulating round the blogosphere.

Meantime, Google Gadgets Architect Adam Sah will be delivering a session called "Google Gadgets for the Enterprise" at AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 West (23-26 September 2007) in Santa Clara, CA, at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
