Online / Browser Scripted Amiga Emulation (SAE)

Thanks to ever advancing web tech with Html 5 and Javascript it now possible to emulate complete gaming system, this of course now includes the Amiga. It still early days of this setup and you need to have quite a powerful computer to run this type of emulation but its bound to only get better. The Internet Archive web site did add nearly the whole Amiga library of Amiga games, 10,000 titles on there site, however many have since been removed due to licenses and the number has gone down to 4,000 with many of them just being demo versions of popular Amiga games.

Other Cloud Based systems

There are a few other interesting project that both have big Amiga fans involved, Amibian.js (https://jonlennartaasenden.wordpress.com/) & FriendOS (https://friendos.com/) both are Remote desktop protocol systems and have some recognisable systems for Amiga fans. It be interesting in the future where this leads and if a true Cloud based only solution will ever take off.
