Google Desktop in the works

Tuesday, June 5th, 2007

The next step in Google’s siege to conquer the (Microsoft Windows controlled) desktop market; Google Gears.

It’s an opensource browser extension and will let you run web-based apps even when you’re not connected to the web! Not a brand new idea or invention, but this one will have a big impact on the use of Google apps like Gmail, Calendar, Docs & Spreadsheets, Reader, Notebook.

The first application to be made available ‘offline’ is Reader, I expect the others to follow soon! Just imagine; no more need for MS Outlook, Word, Excel or drafting your ideas in Notepad when you’re on the road and/or without an internet connection!
