What is Offline Browsing?

Offline Browsing is a feature of Microsoft Internet Explorer that allows users to browse cached or subscribed Web content when they are not connected to the Internet. Offline browsing is an easy way to browse Web content on a laptop when an Internet connection is not available.

Users can surf their history folder to view recently accessed Uniform Resource Locators (URLs). If users click on an unsaved link, they are notified that they are working offline and are asked whether they would like to connect to the Internet to access the resource.
