Last week google released a framework similar to flash, with the only difference of running x86 code. They developed a sandbox to limit the type and paramters of instructions that can be run over the browser. It draws over a framebuffer, which then gets updated on the browser. They demonstrated quake, and opengl applications running inside their native client.
Although they don’t have yet a widget toolkit, yet, after I did some research, I found that it is very easy to write an SDL extension, which means that all the libraries running over SDL can be available including 3D game libraries, animation and many widget libraries.
– Just some thoughts…..
