Google is doing a lot of great stuff with Chrome these days. The first version of the browser included it's own task manager, process administration, sandboxing etc., but Google now also announced accelerated 3D support and native code, sandboxed. I would not surprised to see Google Earth to be one of the first applications, that stop being Windows applications and start being Google Chrome applications: Install chrome and visit a specific URL, and it works. No more "download this app" or "install this app", except for Chrome itself.
This is all great, of course, but what development tools do we use for that? C/C++ is notoriously unproductive, and so are web apps. Web 2.0 apps are even worse. We need some tool that can create cross-platform apps, delivered using Google Chrome or similar, that perform well and are easy to write. Delphi has previously shown, that it can compile to several platforms, and Delphi Prism officially targets mono, so why not take on this one?
