Submission + - Google releases Google Gears

chiraz90210 writes: "Robert Scoble just reported that Google released Gears, a plugin for the browser that allows your browser to maintain a small cache. It gives websites the ability to store a limited amount of data on your computer. The possibilities are very interesting. Take some emails from your web-based email reader offline for later reference, synchronizing the data of your enterprise information system at certain intervals, downloading items from news feeds asynchronously while you do something else... More information at the project site. It's released under the new BSD license."

If you think the system is working, ask someone who's waiting for a prompt.

Working...
