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. ….Solutions like NaCl brings back the freedom that should always have been there.
"

This is the freedom for the price of being browser-specific or depending on a browser plugin. It might have been called "Google Flash" or "Google IE" 10 years ago.
Perhaps we are going to witness yet another holy war soon - emscripten/asm.js vs PNaCl or something like that.
