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.
