in reply to Control the browser with Perl6

That is indeed Parrot's vision for the distant future, but even I as a Perl 6 developer and advocate think that it's far off in the future.

Browsers embed highly specialized and optimized javascript JIT compilers, and a general-purpose dynamic VM like parrot can't really hope to compete in terms of speed any time soon. And since speed is a major concern for browsers, we can't really expect to see wide spread adoption of parrot on the browser level until the performance issues have been sorted out.

    Wasn't there a plan to run Perl 6 on Google's JS engine sometime back. What happened to that?

[erix]: you think it only /looks/ worse this time?
[Your Mother]: HR Clinton was literally threatening Russia. She would have been MUCH more likely to start real trouble.
[Your Mother]: I think there is less decorum this time.
[Your Mother]: We’ve had rapists and thieves and unqualified government. They just had decorum.
[erix]: heh, understatement of the week :)
[erix]: well, I hope you're right
[Your Mother]: Bill Clinton assaulted and raped repeatedly. Even when it was hinted and finally all but proved, no one cared because his sexism, and racism, and killing was decorous.
[Your Mother]: I think Trump might be better specifically because no one respects him so he won't get his way the way the others did.
[Your Mother]: (I certainly did not vote for him and have been an outspoken critic of his for three decades, by the by.)
[erix]: I'd like Russia threatened a bit more, flattered a bit less
