Google Reader adds Gears for offline use


I’ve been going back and forth between using Bloglines and Google Reader for reading my endlessly growing list of feeds. I had just decided that overall I preferred Bloglines, when Terry pointed out yesterday that Google has added offline access to Reader, using its new Google Gears technology, a browser extension that allows web applications to offer offline functionality.

That solves one problem, which is how to catch up on my feeds while I’m in places (like airplanes) where I have some time and no connectivity. This may, of course, be a transient phase along the road to truly pervasive network access.
