With the flurry of announcements being made at Google I/O this week such as the Amazon Cloud Drive copy cat, things have been quite busy at Google headquarters these days. Today, according to Techcrunch, Google’s senior vice president Sundar Pichai announced that offline support for popular web apps, Gmail, Google Docs, and Calendar will be released to all this summer. In fact, Google has been testing this feature internally for a couple of months now.
I personally have written about Google Doc’s lack of offline support, especially after Google stopped supporting it with Gears. With web apps like Springpad now offering offline access to users, it’s about time Google release updates for their most popular webapps.

Update: It’s here at last! Well, Gmail offline mode anyways…
