can you say Lotus Notes?

It's always been able to let users use Notes application offline while still being *secure*. Users only get the data they're allowed to modify, the data on the drive is encrypted, users can sign their documents using a built-in PKI infrastruture, etc.

Funny how people are going through hoops to develop what Notes gives you out of the box<nobr> <wbr></nobr>;-)

That said, you could hack up an offline mode in MSIE using their old push technology. I'm glad to see a disconnected web mode is finally being standardized, but I'd bet it's still not going to be as secure and easy to use as Notes was...
