 Replying to [comment:4 DD32]:
 > Wasn't it decided to call Gears by its product name 'Gears' rather than
 by 'Google Gears'?

 "Google Gears" is how Google refers to its own app in the same situation
 in its own documentation:

 {{{This site would like to use Google Gears to enable fast...}}}

 It makes sense in this case especially because when it hasn't been
 approved yet someone is more likely not to know what "Gears" means.
