The problem with using Google Docs as a word processor is that you have to be connected to the Internet. Not a problem anymore. According to this report in The New York Times, Google will start over the next several weeks making its Web-based software available offline. “The offline feature of Google Docs temporarily stores documents changes on a user’s local computer,” the report says. “Once reconnected to the Internet, any changes the user made will automatically be synchronized and stored on Google-hosted computers.”
