Get Gears To Speed Up Browsing the Blogs

WordPress 2.6 came out yeasterday with a number of enhancements, including support for Gears. This is a free download from Google which can add a number of improvments. For now WordPress uses Gears to cache commonly-used Javascript and CSS files on your computer, speeding up the loading of many pages.

Gears works on Windows XP and Vista computers with both Explorer and Firefox (another free download you should consider) with support for Safari and Opera pending. I don’t know if any blog software other than WordPress supports Gears yet, but quite a few blogs currently use WordPress and therefore this should speed up your browsing as bloggers using WordPress update to the latest version.
