6. Going Offline

Chapter 6. Going Offline

There’s a feature of HTML5 called the offline application cache that allows users to run web apps even when they are not connected to the Internet. It works like this: when a user navigates to your web app, the browser downloads and stores all the files it needs to display the page (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, images, etc.). The next time the user navigates to your web app, the browser will recognize the URL and serve the files out of the local application cache instead of pulling them across the network.
