I totally agree with you, HTML5 will replace Gears, however as the
first article in the link provided says:
"... HTML5 isn't complete, though, and isn't fully supported by any
existing browser. It's a little like a landlord greeting a prospective
tenant by pointing at an empty lot across the street and talking up
the skyscraper planned for that space."
The best point for Gears (at least in my project) is that is it open
source. All that I was looking for was the XPI code, which I found,
so life goes on....
