Google's all-Web computers are due to hit stores June 15; here's a look at what to expect
Google Docs and more offline apps
With offline Gmail access giving Chromebook users something conceptually similar to offline use of Microsoft Outlook, so too will offline access to Google Docs help some users make the move from Microsoft Word. The aforementioned HTML5 caching capabilities in Chrome will store local copies of recent documents, letting a user continue working on a plane ride. Google Calendar will also receive offline access this summer, and some non-Google companies like the New York Times are already providing offline access.
