I've been waiting for this since I learned about Google Gears. Waiting for Google to implement the offline/online sync of their "online office solution".
Check out the video...
Eversince, Microsoft cancelled my multi user license for it's office suite (saying that my license agreement had expired ....sheeeshhh), my company went for an open source solution and used Open Office. I personally like Google docs because I don't need to carry a thumbdrive to take my work home or vice-versa. The only problem was the stability of the internet connection at my area, or the lack of it!
Now, my account still doesn't allow me to go offline just yet. It's just a matter of time. I've been wating for quite some time already, and a few extra days of waiting shouldn't be a big problem.
