    For some reason it reminded me of this talk:

    windows 95 operating system on a browser uses less memory than GOOGLE CHROME on its own ....how ironic.

    Re: You can now enjoy Windows 95 running in your web browser

    Has anyone actually got this to work? The closest I've got is seeing some DOSBox windows, and Win95 trying to boot. But I gave up after 10 minutes of staring at that screen.

    Every time I've tried it since, it hasn't even got that far - just sits there saying 'downloading' , or 'all downloads complete' but gets no further.

    Not really. My phone stuck on the loading screen and my PC loaded the desktop but then crashed before I could do anything!

    I got a bit further just now, actually saw the Win95 loading screen, but after that I just get 'exception thrown' at the same point every time.

    Sounds like a completely authentic Windows 95 experience to me
