    I'm still confused about what exactly this is... How do I use it, or what can I use it with? Is there some kind of online thing where you can play with it?

      (Sorry for mistakes since I've not tried it)
      Imo this project allows you to run a GTK3 application on some remote host on your HTML5 browser.
      It's a bit like an improved version of VNC or X11 Forwarding.

        Yeah, I figured it'd be something like that. I remember trying to do something (anything) with it not too long ago, but couldn't actually find any info on how, or even any examples of it being used. I'll look into it again tomorrow I guess.

          Look for Alexander Larsson's blog. He's the developer behind this, iirc.
          To use it you need to set the GDK_BACKEND=broadway (iirc) for whatever app you want to remote.
          I've forgotten which port it runs on, though, but just netstat to find it.
