Google Gears

For those that have not heard, Google Gears is now deprecated. Gears was a great JavaScript framework that allowed many things previously difficult, if not impossible to do with browsers.

It’s not all bad news however, Google (Chrome) is ‘working closely’ with Microsoft (Internet Explorer) and Mozilla (Firefox) to develop HTML5 which will obsolete the features Gears used to provide.

I thought I’d give a heads up to all of you, I still see the odd job posting asking for people with Gears experience. If you don’t have to, I personally wouldn’t sink any more money into it.
