SAN FRANCISCO - Google announced today at it's Google I/O conference here that Google documents is going offline.
The Google word-processing service is a Web-based alternative to programs such as Microsoft Word. Because Google Docs is a Web-based service, people who use the application have not been able to use it unless they have an Internet connection. But now that will be changing. And people will now be able to work in Google Docs on airplanes and other places where a Web connection may not be available.
Google said that other services, like Google Presentations and Spreadsheets will soon go offline as well. The company demonstrated how the offline Google Doc feature worked in Chrome.
