Google and Salesforce
There's already an offline client for Salesforce.com, everyone's favorite web-based on-demand CRM. And there are definite stories out there that Google and Salesforce are discussing *something*, and I think it's going to be more interesting than just connecting Gmail into Salesforce.
What if Salesforce worked (in some fashion) with Google Gears to make a better offline experience? Unlike Salesforce's current off-line client, this could be very much the same sort of experience online and offline -- much like the experience of using Google Reader will now be the same both online and offline. And if Google Reader can handle large amounts of feeds -- this might well be possible on the Salesforce side as well.
I'm not sure if this is something practical given Salesforce's architecture, and I haven't done any in depth research into Google Gears -- but I wonder if this might be it.
I'm not sure if this is going to happen -- but I think Google Gears could potentially be very interesting to follow for web-based software.
