Google’s Chrome browser has soared to huge popularity and has been able to snatch the crown of being the top browser from Internet Explorer. Now, the company is trying to push to make offline Chrome apps more popular.
For this purpose, Google has added a whole lot of more Chrome apps to the Chrome Web Store. A number of new web apps are such that they don’t require the user to be connected at all times, thus encouraging the user to use the apps even when he is offline.
This new collection of web apps clearly point that Google is trying to bolster the offline usage of Chrome apps. Not only that, Google is also bringing the offline editing ability for Google Docs soon, something which will hugely increase the use of Google Docs which are already a popular phenomenon.
The ability to work offline, even in a connected world as ours, is still needed at a lot of instances. And by providing it, Google is definitely providing the users with better choices. On the other end, Google is also letting developers add their offline web apps to the Web Store more easily and quickly.
Google is making all these changes right ahead of its much-anticipated I/O event. According to the company, “Drive will be seamlessly integrated with the File Manager and support offline access with the next release of Chrome OS in six weeks. With Google Docs offline support (rolling out over the next few weeks), you can keep working on your documents even when offline and seamlessly sync back up when you re-connect.”
