Did you check in the browser settings, Open the browser>Menu>More>Settings>and at the very bottom there are the settings for Gears, i think you have to activate it that way in order for it to work.
Hmm thanks deinfinityx - it looks like its enabled by default but doesn't seem to be working too well (at least the WorkerPool doesn't work).
No prob, the only place i have gotten it to work is Google homepage but i have a loose understanding on gears anyway. But i don't think its full implemented on Android yet, hopefully with the 2.0 update and the improvements to the browser we should see more of a full fledged browser.
