Offline Applications with Google Gears

On November 14, 2007, in Web Development, by Anuj Gakhar

A colleague just told me about the recently released Google Gears API. It enables offline development of web applications as it has got a inbuilt Localserver and an inbuilt SQLlite database. You can also write some code to synchronize your applications to work both offline and online. It is basically a browser extension and needs to be installed just once (I just installed).  Its currently in beta state (developer only release)  and is open source as well. I think this is something really cool.  I am going to try it some over the next few days and try to implement it where possible in my current projects. More details here.

    AFAIR it is the sme data base which is used in AIR. You can achieve similar results in Adobe AIR.
