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.

That's not true at all anymore. You can compile other languages into Javascript, you just have to use LLVM and Emscripten+asm.js (or similar tech) to do it. If they can get Unreal Engine working on it, then I'm sure you don't need NaCl at all.
