That's what I felt straight away when this video started and felt that way most of the way through. The reason being. I like it when people tell me that they're going to develop a bunch of features I've been crying out for for years. Well that's what this talk is about.
It's talking about the upcoming features of Google Gears. what got me straight off is that they state that they want web applications to become as powerful as desktop applications. That's what I've been waiting for along with lots of others and that's their real aim. The initial focus on Offline applications was just a precursor to this.
Just thought I'd pass this on as it gives me a lot of hope for the future of the web.
