Safari plug-in creates a richer platform for Web apps.

Overview

Google Gears is a plug-in that extends your browser to create a richer platform for Web applications.

Gears was designed to be used on both Google and non-Google sites. A number of Web applications currently make use of Gears, including two Google products: Google Reader and Google Docs. Additionally, Zoho and Remember the Milk have been using Gears since its original launch. If you're running Windows Mobile on your cellphone, Picasa Web Albums also makes use of Gears.

My question is would it allow something like a port of Firebug to Safari?

Pretty sure this is now abandonware at least for Mac Safari. Should probably just uninstall it. Google Maps triangulates your wiki position without it now and that's the only reason I had this creepy app updating itself on my machine anyway. You can uninstall it by finding it in your Internet plug-ins folder in your Library, then right-click on it to open it's package contents and double-click the uninstall.command and Terminal will run, ask for your password, and rid you of this crap.

Can't control how and when it updates. Google thinks they know what's better for you, apparently. Just for this alone it's enough to give them the lowest rating possible. Google being control freaks might fly with Windows users, but this is Mac users, !@#$%^holes.

My Safari4 hasn't been running well in Snow Leopard. I uninstalled this program and, wow, what a difference in speed... my personal opinion - useless baggage.

Both the Develop Menu and Debug Menu (handy for emptying cache, if you keep one) are easily available in Safari. Any number of newer version utility-tweakers such as MacPilot (recommended) ... Secrets (free) ... and more ... will enable one or both. I'm sure there's a command line way, as well.

I heard there's a beta for Safari. Would love to know if anyone has tried it out. Sounds interesting. I've never tried this extension because I'm a Safari user.
