ZOHO beats Google with its own product !


Today ZOHO announced that they are giving the much needed offline functionality to their Zoho writer. I was quite excited to read it on Techcrunch, as I have been a regular user of Zoho applications, especially the writer and the polls functionality.

When I visited Zoho writer, I was in for a surprise. When I click the Offline link on Zoho writer, it opens up Google Gears window for download. It is ironic that offline functionality of Zoho is based on Google Gears, as they are their biggest competitors.

Zoho Writer has features that beats Google Notebook hands down, and with this new functionality they have moved farther ahead.

Currently, this functionality is offered only for writer and that too in “read only” mode. However, this functionality is soon going to be extended to other products in their stable with read-write mode.

Zoho has been one of my favorite Indian start-ups and they way they are going that “favorite” tag is going to remain for a long time to come.
