Amiga A500 emulator Portable native client
To show off the power of the native client software for the Chrome browser Google developer Christian Stefansen has ported over the free UAE Amiga Emulator to run under native client.
This allows users of the Chrome web browser to run an Amiga A500 in their browser window with no additional software requirements.
The emulator uses official Kickstart ROMs supplied by Cloanto and a copy of Workbench 1.3 . This allows you to boot up the emulated Amiga and have a play around with it some demos supplied. if you want to run your own Amiga games ADF files on the emulator you will need to buy the Amiga Forever Chrome plugin. There is no way of providing your own ROM files.
The developer of the emulator took about a month to port and tweak the UAE source code from the C programming langauge to native client. Although the emulator is cross platform working on Windows, MacOS and Linux versions of the Chrome browser it does not yet support Android or iOS.
This is an impressive technical feat and something that only a few years ago would have been impossible to do. It may not support the full features of some Amiga Emulators but could certainly give a nice boost of retro Amiga without the need to install an emulator.
