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.

  1. Discovered this webpage whilst I was looking for some information for our webpage, clearly this may not be all releative however its surprising how you can reach a website accidentally and discover oneself looking at something totally different but just as beneficial. I am inclined to get distracted a too often this way.
