[webkit-dev] Web SQL Database API - openDatabaseSync

On page:


I see:

  "Starting with Android 2.0, the Android browser has had full support for
the HTML 5 Web Worker specification."

Is the quoted page incorrect about Web Workers on Android? (It seems to
contradict what you wrote below).

I was hoping to do some prototyping with Web Workers and Google Gears on
Android until such time as the sync database API is available. But perhaps I
will need to limit testing to desktop Chrome for the moment.

Async Web SQL Database is available on Android since version 2.0.

Sync Web SQL Database and Web Workers are not currently available on
Android (not even on 2.2).
