Google Gears on OS X? - 01-17-2010, 05:03 AM
I wouldn't normally ask here, I'd probably snoop around a lot more than I had but I know that Silverlight had the same compatibility issue for some reason.
Google Gears won't give me the option to install in Safari at Gears
Does anyone else experience this?

I think the main issue is that Gears checks if Safari 4 is installed and then aborts. The biggest hiccup being that Gears doesn't support 64-bit. Of course that's not a big deal on a Mini. There is a user-compiled version which bypasses these checks here:
Download Google Gears for Snow Leopard
I haven't tried it on my Mini, but I have tried it briefly on a development system I use and it seemed to work.
Honestly though, I just use Firefox.
