Sent to you by Brianna via Google Reader: Access Any Web Site (Like
Wikipedia) Offline with GearsMonkey via Lifehacker Australia on
21/11/07 Firefox with Greasemonkey and Google Gears: The Wikipedia
Offline Greasemonkey script plugs Greasemonkey into Google Gears (the
offline web access extension that works with Google Reader and other
sites) to provide offline access and syncing with Wikipedia. Once
you've installed the script, head to Wikipedia and enable Gears. Now,
when browsing any page on Wikipedia, you'll notice a small frame that
contains links to cache the current page or access other pages you've
already cached. Even better, the author of the script provides a howto
guide for taking virtually any web site offline with Gears and
Greasemonkey, so anyone with some javascript chops should be able to
start building Gears access for their favourite sites (here's hoping we
see a lot more of these). The Wikipedia Offline script is free,
requires Greasemonkey and Google Gears. GearsMonkey: Google Gears +
Greasemonkey to take Wikipedia offline [Google Code]
