According to text in Google Code:
Google Gears is an open source browser extension that lets developers create web applications that can run offline. Gears provides three key features:
- A database, to store and access data from within the browser
- A worker thread pool, to make web applications more responsive by performing expensive operations in the background
Google Gears is currently an early-access developers’ release. It is not yet intended for use by real users in production applications at this time.
