How to Read RSS Feeds Offline in Google Reader

Google has just released Google Gears, which lets websites store data on your computer for offline access. The first web application that you can use it with is Google Reader. Reading feeds offline with Google Reader has been a much-requested feature by many users so it's nice that it's finally here.

First off, you'll need to install Google Gears. Then restart your browser. A dialog box will pop up asking if you want to to let Google store data on your computer. Click yes, of course.

Then navigate to Google Reader and look for a green button in the upper right corner.

Clicking it will start the downloading process, which will store the last 2000 feed items on your computer.

Now you can take your RSS feeds with you on the plane or anywhere else you can't get Internet access.
