Speed up WordPress with Gears for Safari

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Gears is a little addition to your regular web browser that speeds along the way you use online applications like WordPress making them more like the applications you run from your desktop like Word, Excel, iPhoto and Keynote It does that by copying essential files over from the web to your computer, so that every time you do something new your computer doesn't need to pull 100% of the information down from the web every single time. In the case of WordPress that means that you can glide through tasks quicker than you could without Gears whether you're using a WordPress.com blog, or self hosting your own WordPress So how do you get it up and running? This short video will show you how to get Gears installed in your browser of choice Step One is heading to http://gears.google.com and when we click up here on "Install Gears", you get a package downloaded to your desktop First you've got to decide if you'll allow them to send crash reports - that's cool, so agree and download, open up the package, and then you've got a couple of different options to go through Tell Leopard it's ok... do I want to allow usage statistics? Where do I want to install it? and then, finally I get to install it So now I'm going to restart Safari and open up WordPress and next to my name up-top here I'll see a button called Turbo If I click on that, I've now got the option to enable Gears This is what I want to do. I can say that I trust the site, because there are no problems here - it's my blog! And that's going to go through the update process, which takes a while in reality (I've sped this up) And that's it - you've got a faster blog!
