Imagine web applications continuing to work while you’re offline. Lo and behold, there’s an “Offline” link in my Google Reader. Apparently, it’s the first Google service that can be ported through Gears. It’s currently available in BETA for Windows, Mac, and Linux for IE and Firefox. I can’t wait to have the other applications work offline. Increased productivity all around!
