Running Native Applications in a Browser with Droplet Computing

Nick Janetakis saw the launch of Droplet Computing last month at Cloud Field Day. He found the company’s mission to run native applications online or offline in a browser on any device to be genuinely cool technology. Using their Universal Container Runtime, they can run applications without worrying about the underlying OS or architecture. Most importantly, this isn’t just a concept. While still early days, Droplet disclosed that their tech is being used by companies in production. Nick was definitely intrigued by what he saw.
