One of the main causes of the fall of the Roman Empire was that, lacking zero, they had no way to indicate successful termination of their C programs.

1. We run the browsers on our servers.
2. You use the browsers from the graphical web console.
3. If the servers are full, you wait in the queue.
Browserling is cool stuff. It feels sluggish, though, compared to a browser running locally.
I wonder what the bottleneck is and if it could be improved?
Latency between the browser and servers. Plus encoding latency. Plus it's VNC, which is slow itself. It will get faster when I write a rdesktop implementation.
Is there any particular reason why browserling only supports running browsers, apart from its name?
It seems like it would be just as easy to run other software in the browserling cloud?!
See Announcement: I am doing a startup - StackVM! We built Browserling on top of StackVM. So Browserling can actually run any software. We have planned building a general application product, where you can use any software, but I have no idea when we'll get to that.

I am being sponsored by Syntress since 2007! They bought me an amazing dedicated server to run catonmat on. If you're looking web services in Chicago area, I highly recommend the Syntress guys!
I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
