I'd been wondering the same thing myself, so I asked yesterday on
#webkit on irc.freenode.net. The response from a couple of people
there familiar with the code was that support for ApplicationCache
(and I think in general for the offline-webapps part of the HTML5
spec) is on par with what's currently supported in Gecko. One
limitation is that it doesn't support opportunistic caching -- but
Gecko's implementation has the same limitation.
