    It uses javascript, not java.

    It worked great in 64-bit Nightly for Windows. It crashes in Chrome.

    LOL, yeah I tried the different version thing with Iron, which is a spin off of Chrome, and I learned one thing. When someone comes out with a different version of a browser, it can only mean one thing, you need a better browser. A different version of the same thing can seem fine, until you discover all the problems that go with.

    So yeah, I'll stick with what I said, Firefox sucks. Now you may ask if then so does Chrome, since Iron was made. Well, to that I say, Iron was made before Chrome drastically improved regarding security, and Chrome is blazingly fast compared to anything Firefox.

    I have to ask though, why would you even say "nope", when in pointing to an alternative you're pretty much admitting to it's flaws.

    And this doesn't really qualify as Game forum material btw OP. Probably should have gone on the General Software board.

    Are you joking? You're fine with a topic that has nothing to do with gaming on the Games forum, but have a hissy fit if we talk about a directly related topic (since it deals with browser benching), and you think it's OK to talk about your GPU, which clearly has nothing to do with it.

    More like stop backseat moderating, you're obviously no good at it.

    Well, it is a tech demo of the Unreal engine ported to html 5. So being in the games forum seems kind of reasonable.

    Unreal engine on html 5 makes me hope some people do some really cool things with that. Forget unity.

    I don't know why they bothered. Until HTML5 is officially standardized, it's hardly worth the effort to code for. The different HTML5 browsers agree on little.

    Isn't it specifically regarding browser games and focusing on browser video streaming tech vs games in general though?

    Whatever, seems like a bit of a stretch to me.
