One of the things web apps have historically been bad at is operating offline, but that’s all starting to change, Dojo did it a few months ago, Flash lets you do it, Firefox2 supports DOM:Storage, and now Google Gears lets you do the same.

Is this the last thing that seperates desktop apps from web apps? Should we now just be talking about apps?
