Some nice and very quick work! I wonder if Google Gears will still be used when Firefox 3 supporting offline apps is released?

Thanks guys! Awesome, I love it. Thank you for taking the time to do this AND write about it. When i first saw Google Gears, I just barely had time to read through everything and write a BLOG post on it. And I'm glad to see that Nick came by and looked at your stuff, too. Nick is a really cool dude who actually developed a working Google Gears solution to cache WordPress in PHP. You can read about his endeavors at: And just in case you or anyone else is interested, there’s a guy called Rusty who also did a very nice job taking Google Gears out for a test spin. You can read his tutorial with step-by-step instructions at: Again, thanks for helping the rest of us get started, WebGyver ------------------------------------------------------------ Making web stuff out of bubble gum and kitchen chemicals.

Offline? We're not all on F****** planes are we? disclaimer:- this comment is a humorous reference to a certain DHH's utterances regarding offline web apps. This comment does not reflect the author's own feelings about offline web apps :) Good work guys.

Nice work! Am glad someone else dropped everything to have a play with Google Gears. I decided to experiment by creating a single click method to auto-cache my whole blog so it can be read offline. I also wrote up what I did here -

Dion, this is awesome, very cool representative app. I'm curious, how long did that take you to add that offline functionality to your RSS bling app using the Gears api??

Jay - the world is moving toward everything online, which leads to somewhat of a problem (or catastrophe depending on your job) when you lose online connectivity due to hardware issue, network attacks, backhoes taking out lines, or natural disasters. Wi-fi hot spots aren't that wide spread in many areas so a user is very likely to have intermittant Internet access. Offline web apps allow for stonger adoption of "everything online" by providing an alternative for when you're not (by choice or by necessity).

Erik's a beast, and this sounds really cool, but I feel like I'm missing something about the whole offline browsing thing. The world's obviously moving toward everyone being online all the time, so why are we trying to solve a problem that'll clearly be less relevant as a little time goes by? There's just been so much offline browsing buzz lately (OBB, if you will), if someone could explain what I'm missing about this whole concept, I'd appreciate it.
