Submission + - River Trail - Intel's parallel JavaScript (i-programmer.info)

mikejuk writes: Intel have just announced River Trail an extension of JavaScript that brings parallel programming into the browser. The code looks like JavaScript and it works with HTML5 including Canvas and WebGL so 2 and 3D graphics are easy. A demo video shows an in browser simulation going from 3 to 45 fps and using all eight cores of the processor. This is the sort of performance needed if 3D in browser games are going to be practical.
You can download River Trail as a Firefox addin and start coding now. Who needs native code?
