Yay! Finally read the following on Google Groups..
We are excited to share a beta version of Gears for Safari with you!! We
would love for you to install it and test it and file bug reports so we can
polish it and find all the corner cases.
Thats awesome! Why do I care? Well, I’ll finally (hopefully) be able to use buxfer in an automated manner, so it can download my bank transactions automatically. I know Buxfer released something for Safari recently, but that still won’t work with one of my bank accounts.
Anyways, will definitely wait for Gears to move out of beta before I trust it with my online banking credentials.
