Gears API

Estoy escribiendo una publicación en un blog sobre las primeras API de la Web móvil y Alex Russell me recordó a Google Gears

Gears modules include:

  • LocalServer Cache and serve application resources (HTML, JavaScript, images, etc.) locally
  • Database Store data locally in a fully-searchable relational database
  • WorkerPool Make your web applications more responsive by performing resource-intensive operations asynchronously

Creo que es interesante ver que AppCache y WebSQL, Geolocalización y WebWorkers surgieron de las ideas en Google Gears y solo sobrevivieron los dos últimos. WebSQL nunca fue ampliamente compatible, y fue reemplazado por IndexedDB; y AppCache reemplazado por ServiceWorker
