"Currently, there is no plan to support Gears under Chrome/Chromium, the devs have mentioned that they will use HTML5 local storage capabilities instead of Gears.

No current plan to implement this.

Gears overlaps with a lot of HTML5
(since many HTML5 features are derived
from Gears). Current plan is to skip
Gears and go directly to HTML5
implementations within Chrome.

(Getting Gears as is to work in Linux
Chrome sounds like a lot of effort,
for various reasons I don't fully
understand. Depending on how quickly
the HTML5 stuff happens, we may
revisit this decision.)"
