Google Docs picks up native offline support, no more browser extension needed

Thanks to the advent of Service Workers and other web technologies, it’s easier than ever to make web apps that work offline. Before now, the only way to edit Google Docs files while not connected to the internet was with a Chrome extension. Starting today, that’s no longer required.

Google announced today on the G Suite blog that Docs, Sheets, and Slides files can now be edited while offline as long as you mark the files (or the folders they are in) for offline access while connected to the internet.
