It's not new news that Google has been speculated to be slowly entering the OS market, and recently made the biggest step towards this goal by releasing its offline platform called Gears.

But now, Google has made its Google Docs available for offline use. It can be seen as the most natural progression since Google Docs is so successful, but lacks the offline ability that makes MS products superior and more convenient to business travelers.

Google makes the Docs available and its spreadsheet app available immediately for offline use, but will postpone the release of its slide presentation application due to technical testing.

To make use of the offline availibility, users will need to install a plugin into their browsers, known as Gears, and then visit the Google Docs page. Expect your Docs folders to be synced as soon as you have internet access again.
