Since Browse uses xulrunner, it should be possible to use the Firefox
version of Gears, with possible modifications. However, I could not
find any documentation about XUL/Firefox extensions running on Browse.
On a related note, Sebastian Dzillas has done some work on packaging
Gears in a .rpm for Firefox. The work is not complete, as the
extension tries to write in places owned by root, instead of the local
user profile. My project would probably need to be able to
move/edit/delete the Gears profile for Journal integration (search
your .mozilla default profile for the folder 'Google Gears for
Firefox' after installing Gears in Firefox).
