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.

NaCl/Pepper locks out every other browser vendor out there, by duplicating the entire application platform --- JS vs other IR languages is only one aspect, the bigger problem is regular standardized Web APIs vs whatever Google alone already decided to put in Pepper.

Not sure how that's "freedom" --- unless you think that the multiple-implementations aspect of the Web wasn't important.

Remember that IE6 was best-in-class technology when it came out.
