Interesting that they've removed references to Google.

Yeah, you're right,
It doesn't look like a Google product at all.. :/

Of course, they want their technology to be used as the "flash" for offline functionalities... This is a step to this democratisation...

It doesn't mean they can't make it look like a Google product.

As Gears is a fully open source project, I think Google intends the name disassociation to highlight this fact.

Google did announce at I/O that the product would become less "Googley" to ensure that people did not only associate it with Google. This seems like a good idea since Google has stated that it wants Gears to become a recognised standard in the future.

This, the favicon change... They are trying to change their image to something more specific?
