PC Magazine reports: "This past Monday, Mozilla unveiled the third alpha of Gran Paradiso, the code name for Firefox 3.0. If development goes according to plan, this will be the first version of Firefox—or of any browser, for that matter—to have the three key components needed to support offline Web applications: DOM Storage; an offline execution model; and synchronization. That critical foundation will let free or low-cost Web suites compete with Microsoft software and possibly break the company's decades-long domination in office productivity apps."
Firefox just shot the next volley in the new browser war between Internet Explorer and Firefox. In the last browser war I.E. won, but the Netscape Navigator was a pretty crappy browser towards the end.
