Google Gears and Amiga Browsers
Google Gears allows you to use Google Apps even when you're offline if you have a browser that supports the Google Gears plug-in. If one of the various Amiga browsers out there supported this plug-in, it would give the Amiga a much needed set of tools such as a spreadsheet, wordprocessor, etc.....an entire office suite that is compatible with the commercial suites out there such as MS Office.
Does anyone know if the current Amiga browsers out there will ever support plug-ins that are used by FireFox, IE, etc?

Re: Google Gears and Amiga Browsers
To make FireFox plugins / addons requires :
Document Object Model Core
XUL - XML User Interface Language
If we had these as libraries, all new software could in theory be pluginable, Not just FireFox, ALL new
Amiga programs could have plugin capability.
Firefox addon file formats (RDF,JS,JAR)
A FireFox Plugin for addon backups use
XPI file format (basically a zip file with installer)
Java - Jar format
