Google is removing Gears from its Chrome browser as many gears features are available in HTML5.

“It’s finally time to say goodbye to Gears,” said Gears team member Aaron Boodman in a blog post. “There will be no new Gears releases, and newer browsers such as Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9 will not be supported. We will also be removing Gears from Chrome in Chrome 12.”

Google have implemented the HTML5 File API, which is very similar to the Gears Blob functionality.
