I'm thinking about buying a Google Chromebook fairly soon. The only
application that I currently use that I can't find a Google Chrome (OS)
extension for to run on the Chromebook is RSSOwl. Is there any chance that the
folk at RSSOwl will be bringing out a Chrome extension version of the program?
If that would be possible (or if there are any other alternatives for Chrome
that can check feeds at an interval of 1 second) then that would mean I could
buy a Chromebook straight away.
Any help on this matter would be much appreciated.
I don't exactly know how Chrome OS / Chromium OS works. But this is required
to run RSSOwl:
• Any kind of Java SE 5.0 compatible JVM
Afaik Chrome OS does not support either of them.
There seems to be a port of a JVM to Chrome OS, so running Java should be
Chrome OS seems to use GTK+, so using SWT should be possible if a JVM is
available and you have a Chromebook with Intel processor.
I don't know if it has everything required to run XULRunner.
…it may be possible to run RSSOwl on that device. But it will be complicated –
using a „real“ computer/Notebook/Netbook would be much easier, Google's Chrome
OS is the big Problem.
