I'd heard whispers about OpenCL running in a browser, but I figured it would take months if not years to see any real code. So I was pleasantly shocked when Nokia released a WebCL implementation that runs in Firefox. I haven't figured out how this will set the world on fire, but even if no one takes advantage of it, the technology is astounding.
I found a CNET article that discusses WebCL. It doesn't say anything particularly profound, but one conclusion is clear: OpenCL is gaining momentum.
