It looks like the GearPad sample shows how to do this. From Sample Applications:


Gearpad is simple web-based notepad which allows you to read and write notes, even offline. Gearpad transitions between online/offline states seamlessly, even when the network connection is intermittent.

I think you can download it from here.

Since Google Gears is now deprecated, what are the favoured options for this kind of sync? I know CouchDB can be used for this, but I suppose each solution has its ideal applications (and adherents), but I'd like to read some opinions and experiences.
