Zoho said Monday that its Web-based Zoho Writer word processing application is adding offline editing capabilities.

In a blog post, Zoho said users will be able to edit and view documents offline. Previously, you could only read documents offline.

The news comes a few days after the launch of Live Documents, the latest entrant to try and poach a small slice of the Microsoft Office juggernaut.

To make the offline Zoho Writer feature work, you'll need a Google Gears plug-in installed on your browser. By default, 15 documents are downloaded from the 'My Docs' and 'Shared Docs' folders.

Zoho also has a video demo of the new offline capabilities.

In the big picture, Zoho's move is just the latest step in taking Web-based applications offline. Once these features become the norm, there's a chance that corporate adoption will pick up.
