Above is an image of Silver Smalltalk running in a native Vista window and five separate browsers. Counter-clockwise from the top left:
- Opera Browser
- Chrome Browser
- Safari Browser
- IE8 Browser
- Firefox Browser
- Vista Desktop
Note that they are all running *exactly* the same Smalltalk code.
And they will soon be sharing *exactly* the same serialized Smalltalk data – that is, being able to share objects across different environments.
The browser runtime *.XAP file is 171kb; the desktop *.EXE runtime is 158kb.
