    There's the nice things of e.g. software with a GPL license :-). No one can leave people without that software; in that case, if no new versions are made available because Apple or M$: Google can say "fork you" :-), like Google has already done with Webkit. It increases peace of mind :-)

    I'm about to try it.
    Either way. Google docs is really slow and clunky. I have tried several online web tools and they usually feel slow and clunky. It's a small gripe for developers so I applaud Google for going one step further. I'm frustrated enough with too much layering on hardware that is capable of so much more.

    Re: GTK / QT etc... I guess google are trying not to keep their eggs in one basket because who knows. If they supported QT for EVERYTHING. Chances are, apple or M$ would buy them out...

    I've recently converted my flash website to html5 with Swiffy. Later this year I'll try to import and improve my site with this. Hope this will work.

    I'ts essentially a banner maker (most of the presets are for ads). The animations tools are good and the code produced is clean.

    Only works with en-US

    To get it to work on my en-AU system, I had to start it with en-US.

    Code:
    rm -r ~/.local/share/google-web-designer
    LANGUAGE=en_US google-webdesigner
    see https://groups.google.com/d/msg/gwdb...s/NHlOB0hjVTIJ

    That's not "usual". Google tries not to favor one method overly much so they port different tools using different approaches.

    Google Earth is a natively-ported Qt application, Picasa was "ported" using Wine, and this is apparently a natively-ported GTK+ application.
    ok, i have to admit i didn't know about qt earth. afaik, 1st versions were wine based and i stopped using it
