Firefox 3 and Google team up for offline apps

Mozilla and Google are collaborating on an effort to make web applications work offline.

Firefox 3 will be the first internet browser to offer offline web application support when it launches at the end of this year.

Mozilla is working with open-source messaging provider Zimbra, for example, to offer offline features for its email service - such as saving emails typed offline to a "drafts" folder, ready to be sent when the user next connects.
