Google Gears 0.2

Google released new version of Google Gears!
Google Gears Beta is an open source browser extension that enables web applications to provide offline functionality using the following JavaScript APIs:
1) Store and serve application resources locally
2) Store data locally in a fully-searchable relational database
3) Run asynchronous Javascript to improve application responsiveness
New included features are HttpRequest and Timer.
The main reason for these modules was that developers told Google they wanted to make HTTP requests and create timers inside Gears workers, as written on Gears API Blog.
