Gears API

私は初期のモバイルWeb APIに関するブログ記事を書いているし、Alex RussellはGoogle Gearsを思い出させた

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


AppCacheとWebSQL、GeolocationとWebWorkersはGoogle Gearsのアイデアから出てきて、実際に生き残ったのは後者の2つだけです。 WebSQLは決して広くサポートされておらず、IndexedDBに置き換えられました。 ServiceWorkerに置き換えられたAppCache
