As expected, Google Gears is now available for Safari users. You can read the full announcement here, but the gist of it is that you can now use all those cool offline web apps (the WordPress editor, Google Docs, et cetera) on Safari as well as Firefox.

This was probably easy to implement since Google’s own Chrome browser uses the same rendering engine. It also shows they are making some progress porting elements of Chrome to the Apple platform, so I’m getting some hope of seeing a beta release of that in 2008.
