Google Reader Offline Mode

Google Reader

Now you get a ‘Offline’ link on the top right hand side of Google Reader. You need to install Google Gears which enables you to write offline web applications.

Once the Google Gears Firefox extension is installed you can click the green down arrow to download about 2000 article headings to read offline.

When you are back online you can click the blue top arrow to sync your marked/read articles back to the service.

Applications like Google Gears will enable the last step for web applications to cross over to the desktop.
