Amiga & AROS

This website runs an emulator of the Amiga 500 inside of Chrome by using Portable Native Client, a way to run existing C/C++ in the browser in a safe way across operating systems and across machine architectures. On the main page you can boot the Amiga, insert floppy disks, play the games, and generally pretend it's still the late 80s.

So cool.

Cool! Much better. IMHO It's stupid to run native code on a web browser...it goes against the original idea of the web.

The original idea of the Web was to share documents, not apps. This is actually an evolution.
What I really hate about JS (which I believe is the ugliest language ever) is the fact that it is the only choice. If you don't like it you have to use something that translates your code into JS, adding another layer of complexity, and to display someething you have to revert to HTML, another laguage designed for documents and not GUIs.
Solutions like NaCl brings back the freedom that should always have been there.
