> Craig Latta has done some strong work integrating Squeak and Pharo with the browser using a bridge derived from Bert Freudenberg's SqueakJS. Craig's work allows one to use Pharo running on the standard Cog VM, client side, to render to the browser, receive events from the browser, and manipulate the DOM.
