Launch GTK Apps in Your Web Browser; No, Really!


Hey, psssst. Want to see something wild? Operating systems that run GTK+ 3.2 (part of GNOME 3.0) can have applications launch in a web browser, thanks to HTML5’s gdk “broadway” backend. A demo of this miracle is attached below. What does this mean for all of us? Well, an OS like Chrome OS — built on Ubuntu Linux with GTK enabled — could have the ability in the future to run actual apps installed on the platform or from the cloud through its native Chrome browser interface. My head is spinning thinking of the other ways developers may think of using this. [via]
