Gears on linux x64 ...


gmail, google docs and google calendar now offers offline support with google Gears ! Great... but...

Gears is not available for x64 linux... I've ask the google support for a release date of an official x64 build... but meanwhile, I've found (yes... google is my friend) this blog : http://nielspeen.com/blog/2009/02/google-gears-64-bit/ that gives a x64 build of gears that actually works ;)

Great !

Btw, I can understand that one loves Yahoo! webmail which is great, but Microsoft Live mail... seriously... it's ugly, slow, so poor in functionality... why use it when you have access to an awesome webmail like gmail?? ;)

Update : new version of the x64 version is available on niespeen blog ( 0.5.18.0 version (instead of the 0.5.16.0 version proposed by the firefox updater))
