A brand new emulator have emerged by the name of WebMSX, or just WMSX. This emulator has been created by Paulo Peccin (ppeccin) from scratch, and uses only Javascript and HTML5, so it can run online, on Chrome (preferably) and Firefox. This emulator has only recently been announced to the public, but seems quite usable and stable. So far, it can emulate only the MSX1 standard.
In the words of the author: "WebMSX, or simply WMSX, is a new MSX emulator designed for the Web.
Its goal is not to emulate every single machine combination and piece of hardware in existence.
Instead, it will focus on delivering a simple and straightforward experience, with ease of deployment for websites.

There's no translation, there's just interpretation, exactly like it works in all other programming languages...

We call this kind of websides, "honeypot" websites!
It collects all the games people play...
After collecting, making a CD compilation and selling on Ebay?

Just get the per-game download count on ROM-sites and you're done, much easier compared to developing a whole new emulator from scratch. I would estimate the total income of selling another new MSX CD roms compilation on eBay around something like 57.43 euros, divide that by the time spent on developing this emulator and you'll probably get a 0.10 euro / hour salary Smile

OMG, I missed the joke (or I'm feeding the troll). Time to go to bed !
