One of the best web 2.0 application now available online is google docs. A lot of Microsoft office users are now using google doc instead, for document preparation. The main attractive feature that distinguish it from office is the sharing mechanism. We can easily share the document, where as office doesn’t have such support since it is not online.
One of the main problem google doc faced was, it need internet connection even for editing the document. Since most of the google document users migrated from Microsoft office, they really want google docs to be offline. Yes google recognized the need. Now we can edit google document even while you are offline. Google uses google gear for this. I mentioned about google gears in one of my post.
With the help of google gear we can edit the document any time and whenever we go online it will be updated with the server. Watch out the youtube video and see how its works.
