Opera Software announced today it will support (Google) Gears in its desktop and mobile browsers (which includes Opera Mobile for Windows Mobile as well). Gears is an open source browser extension that lets web applications run offline. The inclusion of Gears in Opera's main browsing products supports Opera's vision of transforming the browser into a full platform for applications, regardless of device.
According to Charles Wiles, Product Manager for mobile web apps at Google, Opera will have full support for Gears on Opera Mobile 9.5 when they launch this year.

"The forthcoming Opera Mobile 9.5 with Gears will usher in a new era for the Web on mobile devices," said Jon von Tetzchner, CEO, Opera. "Together, these products will create new ways to bring applications to life on mobile devices. Developers will be able to use this along with Opera Dragonfly to develop and debug compelling applications for any connected environment.

No word yet when a general release of Opera Mobile 9.5 or Gears enhanced Opera Mobile 9.5 can be expected.

Cheers ~ Arne
