GTK+ The latest version of GTk+, version 3.2, has been released. While this new release contains many smaller, less invasive changes, it also has experimental support for two very important new features. First, the ability to run Gtk+ applications inside a browser using HTML5. Second, initial support for the Wayland display server.

I have to wonder if running GTK+ (or any other toolkit) inside a browser is a good idea.


Ugh, your understanding of GTK+ / html5 is way off. GTK does not run inside a browser, rather a GTK+ app using the html5 backend spits out html which is displayed by the browser. The GTK+ app sits server side, opens a socket, and the browser connects to this socket, basically the app becomes a web server.

This could be interesting.
