In 2007 Google launched its new product called Google Gears. Google Gears makes it easy to browse the Internet, or sites you have already visited so you can visit them again using an amazing cache technology.

Here I will explain you what is google gears is doing. When we open our worpdpress admin, wordpress will download common images, JavaScript libraries and CSS files.

If we use the google gears then WordPress will store all these ’static’ files on your hard drive and will not download them from the web server. Means each time you are opening the WordPress admin panel that time wordpress will not download the common images and css and javascript. Thus, it should speed up things especially if you are on a slow connection.
