Recently I’ve been enabling Google Gears on sites that support it, most notably I’ve enabled it on the WordPress backend of this site which means appears to fix some loading issues I had when I had a dodgy internet connection.
I’ve also enabled it on my Gmail account where its improved my email experience a lot. My biggest problem was when SAIX is having international connection issues which is when Gmail tended to get a little flake-y which is a problem as I use it as my primary email client. I’ve decided to not install Google Gears in Firefox but rather switch to running Chrome, Firefox is still my favourite browser but Chrome feels faster when running Gmail and I can easily pass it different proxy settings which is nice when I’m moving around from one client to another.
Next up… I’m busy enabling it on Google Docs, can’t wait to see how that goes.
