Google Developing GMail Offline Version Using Google Gears


A report, citing highly placed sources, says that Google has developed an offline version of Gmail that is likely to be made available within this year.

Like Google Reader which lets you work offline using Google Gears, GMail users will be able to interact with their GMail account even when they don’t have an active Internet connection.

While it’s a definite possibility that Google is working to enable Gmail for Offline access via Google Gears, there are some bits that I will take with a grain of salt.

For instance, the report says that you would have to download a GMail software client for that would automatically synchronize with the Gmail server. Why? Google Gears works inside a web browser and do not require any additional software. Or is Google developing a standalone desktop client for GMail like Outlook. Both the cases look slightly doubtful.
