Zimbra Desktop brings AJAX-based collaboration offline
Zimbra on Tuesday announced the launch of Zimbra Desktop, an offline-capable version of their collaboration and messaging software for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux operating systems.
Zimbra Desktop has been vetted for use with leading Web browsers including Firefox and Safari. The software enables users to have e-mail support, search tools, contact management, document editing and other functionality while they’re out of the office and without a connection. When you reconnect, changes are automatically synced to the Zimbra server.
The Zimbra Desktop software is described as an alpha program, which means it’s still at a fairly early stage of development. It’s available to users of the free Open Source edition and the Network Edition of Zimbra — pricing and final availability have not yet been set.
