Why Google Desktop rocks: Caches every webpage you've visited

I love how GDS keeps a cached copy of every webpage I've visited. So when my laptop is not connected to the internet, I can access every single webpage I've viewed. It's like dragging along a part of the internet with me wherever I go -- the part that's most relevant to me, no less.


  • Internet Explorer and Firefox both have caches. When you choose "File -> Work Offline" from the menu, you can use the part of the internet that's in your browser's cache. (It's not perfect on Firefox. Depends on each web-pages headers I guess. The Slogger does the job though.)

  • Ah yes - I have used Slogger before - it's great.
