Hi Nikunj,

So one of the things I've never fully understood with your proposal is
what usage patterns people are going to want to use this new API with.

Is the idea that people that use XMLHttpRequest to load data from the
server will in offline mode want to intercept those XHR requests and
respond with data stored in for example localStorage or some other
type of clientside storage? Without having to change the code that
uses the XHR object?

Or is the idea that for things like <img src=...> or <script src=...>
people will in offline mode want to intercept these requests and serve
replies based on data stored in localStorage/elsewhere?

Or both?

Or something else?

/ Jonas
