Heise.de reports, that the Qt toolkit is currently being ported to Google's Native Client (NaCl). Qt was known as the GUI framework for Kylix on Linux, and once Qt has been ported, it seems like a very easy thing to make Kylix able to compile GUI apps for Google NaCl, providing a development kit that creates GUI apps with native code to run as managed code inside a browser.
Does this make sense? Some of it does. Delphi/native developers create cool GUI apps, but most of them are networked. If we can create a applications, that are delivered as easily as web pages, using the same source code as our native Win32 apps, that would be extremely great. However, Qt or CLX would not be the best framework for it... so if Embarcardero delivers a CLX-based tool for Qt & NaCl, most users would probably initially not dare to use it for anything else than products with short expected support lifetime. However, the internet has a lot of these.
In order to invest a large amount of R&D money into apps developed using Delphi for Qt&NaCl, right from the first version, we need at least TCanvas support, but preferrably support of the visual components of the VCL.
I seriously hope that there is a business case for some of this. Embarcardero has a unique chance to create something great, based on existing technology. One of the cool things about Google Chrome and Google NaCl is, that they do not require administrative rights to be installed on a PC - unlike the .net runtime. And with Google Chrome Frame, even MSIE will be able to run this.
