Google Gears — now I can read the blogs on the plane

Anyone who wants to catch up on unread blog feeds during a flight have been pretty much SOL. My method was to open up Firefox tabs and open the feed for a big stream such as Engadget, and another tab for Gizmodo, and so on. Then, when on the plane, I could read the feed, but only those that I had opened.

Today I noticed a new icon on my Google Reader (I’ve been a Google Reader user for more than six months after years of faithful Bloglines use). It downloaded “Google Gears” which in turn makes offline reading of all my feeds possible. This is big. This is good.
