Zoho finally release offline read/writability

November 26, 2007

It’s been a while since Zoho announced their offline capabilities using Google Gears (back in August in fact). At the time I blogged about their announcement of offline read capability with the write functionality coming in a matter of weeks.

Well, they’ve now announced full offline functionality. Still using Google Gears the feature will allow you to finish off that document while disconnected from the web and then synchronise changes when you connect again.

The functionality is only available for Zoho Writer at the moment, but I’d hope to see it rolled out across their suite of products soon.

Interestingly, Zoho have also spotted the announcements about Live Documents. They’ve responded with a post on their blog about the revenue claims made by Sabeer Bhatia.

It’s going to be interesting in the online office market. I still think Google may have something up their sleeves which could make them dominant, but who do you think will be the winners?
