Google Gears – Speed up your Online Life


Sorry about the gap between posts, I have been a busy bee!


Google gears is web technology that integrates with Safari and Firefox. This plugin allows you to locally store the essential information contained within web services such as WordPress (I am using it this very moment), Google Reader, Passpack, Zoho Office Suite, Mindmeister and potentially many, many more.


You simply download gears and install the plug-in, visit the site you want to turbo speed up and download the essential files from the website (don’t worry this process is mostly automated, your browser will detect if the website is gears optimised and prompt you to download the files).


You will then find that the particular web service you are using will work like a hot samurai sword through a ten foot slab of cornish butter!
