I've just allowed Google Maps to access my current location by enabling Google gears for the same service.

I want to know how do I disable Google Gears now, even for Google Maps or any other website that may ask for enabling Google Gears under chrome.

Under Firefox I can use Tools > page info -> share location = disabled.
