A few days ago, I was at a Google-organised event in London talking about open source technologies and how they form the foundation of various projects.
I was first last week to break news of Quake 2 running inside Google Chrome, which was demoed at the event - awesome!
It’s not all fun and games, though - to run it, you need the latest Chrome build, a fairly decent computer, and to run Chrome with some startup flags that do things like disable the sandboxing in the browser - something you wouldn’t want to do then run a normal webpage (this is to permit the hardware acceleration to work). But other than that, it’s pretty fun and an awesome demonstration of what will soon be possible in standard web browsers!
The project’s homepage is on Google Code, and check out the video below!
