Search firm Webaroo has launched a service that allows people to search parts of the web on their laptops or mobile devices without needing a connection to the internet.
The software works by downloading sections of the internet to a portable device. Webaroo's servers then scour the internet to create relevant packs of information from which users can choose.
"Once you download web packs or websites onto your mobile device, you can search them anytime, anywhere without a connection," said a statement on the Webaroo website.
The company provides packs on topics including news and sports, as well as information on major cities such as London and New York.
"As mobile use grows, consumers want to be able to do more with their mobile devices," said Webaroo chief executive Rakesh Mathur.
"At home or on the go, in the air or on vacation, users can now find the information they need wherever they are."
The downside is that users are unable to view live information as the packs update only when a user syncs their mobile device with an internet-connected machine.
Webaroo already has one major fan in PC maker Acer, which plans to bundle the software with its range of laptops.
"Acer believes that this new, powerful ability to search the web offline will bring tremendous advantages for consumers and business people," said Campbell Kan, head of Acer's mobile computing business unit.
The Webaroo software is currently free to use and that firm plans to raise revenue in the future by including targeted adverts.
