Google Gears – Browser Extension to Enable Offline Apps

Google have released the first beta of their open source browser extension to allow developers to create offline web applications.

The extension consists 3 modules:

  1. LocalServer, which acts as an application server supporting HTML, Javascript and more.
  2. A local relational database engine
  3. WorkerPool, which is a cool way of running Javascript in the background (thread) and therefore not blocking the page.
