My First Gear

Google is yet again geared with a new launch "Google Gears". It is currently in BETA. It is actually an open source web browser extension that adds the offline features for the web applications. We know that the browsers have a "work offline" feature where in we access web pages without internet connection. The similar concept is extended by Google as Gears. It has the capability of storing and serving the working web applications locally. Also has a relational database to store data. Uses javascript effectively for lightening responsiveness.

Download Google Gears (BETA) for Windows, Mac and Linux. If you are interested looking at the source code and really wants to contribute you can have a look at Google Gears Contribution Site.
