I've tried this, but I've never actually found any reason why doing it this way is any better than using a browser. Can somebody shed some light?

Technicaly, you could run applications off the internet, and when you do have access to the internet, you can seamlessly update your new work to the web app from the new desktop app.

It does that? I just thought it was a web browser that could only navigate around on one site. If you have Google Gears installed, then certainly you can explore gmail without a connection, but you can do that with a regular web browser as well.

I still don't see why this stands out...
