JavaScript ApplicationCache : EventTarget

The ApplicationCache describes the state of files cached for the current page. Pages set the manifest="<location to manifest>" attribute on the <html> tag to define the set of files to be cached. Obtained through the window.applicationCache property. See Offline WebPage Spec for more details.
