Gears are for going!

Well I’m quite chuffed with Google Gears.  This new API opens their applications and other web based applications to the world of offline working.  In my case the first and greatest benefit will be an offline capability with Google Reader.  Now the last 2,000 unread articles will be available on the train, on the plane, well anywhere that I’m not connected.

The architecture is neat and simple.

My quick experience of running the product with Google Reader has been good.  I look forward to more of the Google suite of products and other web developers latching on to this new tool.  This is the first major offline web application solution since Lotus released their Domino Offline Services (DOLS) framework.
