Application caching in the browser?

Hello people,

Are any of you implementing application caching in the browser?

Here is the use-case I am interested in:

End-user-Bob uses his browser to navigate to
the_bob_end_user_crm_app.com

While there he navigates to these URLs:

the_bob_end_user_crm_app.com/accts/show/123
the_bob_end_user_crm_app.com/accts/show/321
the_bob_end_user_crm_app.com/accts/show/45678

Each of the above URLs displays dynamic HTML from Rails or an app-
server.

Next, he disconnects his browser from the web.

He navigates to this URL:

the_bob_end_user_crm_app.com/accts/show/87654

He receives a message:

You are not connected to the net.
the_bob_end_user_crm_app.com/accts/show/87654
is unavailable.

He navigates to this URL:

the_bob_end_user_crm_app.com/accts/show/123

He sees HTML which is cached in his browser via “application caching”

Are any of you doing anything like this?

I know it is possible because gmail.com exhibits this type of
behavior.

I’m looking for demos/tutorials/discussions which would teach me how
to do this.

Thanks,

Audrey

To the extent that the browser cache doesn’t already make this
possible, perhaps it’s worth looking at Google Gears?

Thanks,
