It was a 'tongue-in-cheek' comment...

Having said that, there are plenty of simple web pages that will not function off-line (ie if you have them in your browser already, they stop being scrollable or even viewable if the connection is dropped), let alone web apps that can cope with the internet connection being dropped during use.

Some years ago now I was producing responsive web-apps that worked even when off-line, with data being uploaded to the host when the connection came back etc, so - as always a label has been attached to something that's been around for a while to make it seem new and exciting...

'Cloud' services anyone? I remember the first MS attempt at this. Indeed such things were already in their formative stages whem I was at Uni in the 70s, but of course called something else...
