Windows 7: Microcomputer Software Lives Again, This Time in Your Browser

Microcomputer Software Lives Again, This Time in Your Browser

The miracle is now so commonplace that it’s invisible: we have the ability to watch video, listen to music, and read documents right in our browsers. You might get a hankering to hear some old time radio, or classic television programs, or maybe read up some classic children’s books, you’re just a couple clicks away from having them right there, in front of you. Not so with classic software. To learn and experience older programs, you have to track down the hardware and media to run it, or download and install emulators and acquire/install cartridge or floppy images as you boot up the separate emulator program, outside of the browser. Unlike films or video or audio, it was a slower, more involved process to experience software.

Until now.

Browser is restarting all the time
IE is always restarting while I'm on google chrome. I think it may be because there was this thing called connectify what I was downloading and it asked to download IE and I accidentally clicked the box and so I cancelled it. Could that be the reason why?

What percentage of time a day are you in the browser?
By in the browser, I mean actively using it. I'm just wondering how much people actually use other binary desktop applications nowadays. Right now I spend about 95% of my time in the web browser actively using it. I would be 100% if there were web-based management consoles for a domain, fast...
