Offline Gmail Shut Off While Google Switches to HTML5 [latimesblogs.latimes.com]
Gmail users who like to use email offline might have to downgrade their Web browsers, for now.
On Tuesday, Google shut off offline access to Gmail on Chrome, Safari, Opera and the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft's Internet Explorer. The tech giant recommended that Chrome users temporarily switch to older versions of Internet Explorer or Firefox and refuse updates to continue accessing Gmail when not Web-connected.
