I'm in favor of options like this, but remain convinced that the more layers that appear between the ultimate end user software and the hardware, the worse performance will be.  A while back I was taking the "Seaside is *not* all we need for a GUI" side of a debate and described my cash cow as "an etch-a-sketch with a type A personality" - got a good laugh when I ran across that a couple of years later.  Picture users frantically banging on a tablet, selecting, poking and scribbling.  Pardon my lack of vision, but there is no way in hell that HTML+CSS+JavaScript is going to keep up with it.  I also have my doubts about our current vms in that respect, though Windows and its bloat would be out of the picture.

Quick thought: WebKit plugin with Javascript language binding.


Consider the kind of system you could build with html 5 rendered UI.

Interesting project: http://phonegap.com

Sadly, I have zero time to work on things outside of paying work these days.

It would be nice to me port PasswordsPro to Pharo and sell it as a real desktop app (native in any operating system) and reuse the same model to have it on web also.
