Riiiiight. Talk about lag....
I actually thought they made Photoshop to work in browser. This is basically Virtual Machine connected to High end server. Expecting it though.
With the brain power of Google and budget of Adobe, you would have thought they would have tried exploring actual in-browser alternatives of the Photoshop application, not a mere remote desktop virtual machine instance in the browser.
I find it hard to believe that the two companies have been working together for almost two years and merely have a client and server situation happening. This is not a new premise, this is something that a lot of cross-browser/device testing services already do like Browserstack.
Smells fishy to me as well.
İmagine you drawing with a second delay. That is definitely unbearable. But yeah, I hope it will be nice in the future.
Nvidia is trying same technology too. They're trying to render games on the server side so a gamer will play any game on high fps and real time even though he has a useless graphics card.
OnLive was doing it before Nvidia. Honestly, internet speeds just aren't there yet. The distance between the client and the server is too great.
I was hoping for a sort of HTML5 app perhaps using a remote server to do the rendering of the image. This is just VNC using canvas, which is already available on the chrome store.
