Google Gears (BETA)

Google Gears (BETA) is an open source browser extension that enables web applications to provide offline functionality using following JavaScript APIs:

  • Store and serve application resources locally
  • Store data locally in a fully-searchable relational database
  • Run asynchronous Javascript to improve application responsiveness

Great work there, Google. Now please release a new version of Gmail, Google Docs and Gcal with offline functionality, soon.

Any other web applications (Google, or non-Google) would be cool to have this offline functionality? Comment them below!


~~The End~~
