   Apparently Firefox 3 has implemented new features for offline 
resources, including rel="offline-resource" and some new DOM APIs.

| Introduced support for <link rel="offline-resource">, which puts
| resources into the browser's offline cache. This allows a web
| application to ensure that its resources are available in the cache
| when the browser goes into offline mode. See Marking Resources for
| Offline Use for further details on offline support.


This seems someone similar in functionality to the local cache feature 
in Google Gears.  It would probably be worth investigating it and 
standardising something like it in HTML5.
