Google Gears

31 May, 2007

Google today launched a new product called Google Gears which is an open source plugin available for Firefox, IE and others which enables pages to store data offline via a simple API. It uses an SQLite database for the storage and has a sync API.

It provides a half-way house between full desktop applications like Joyent Slingshot and XULRunner and traditional web applications.
