    I might be retarded but isn't electron built from the base of chromium (chrome)? So basically chrome already does run in electron.

    @ryanmhoffman it would make more sense to say that Electron runs in Chrome, since Chromium (the base of Electron) is the core of Chrome.
    But Chrome itself is still a native C++ application.

    If they say the new version will run in Electron, it means they converted all the UI and the rest of modules to run in an web engine, which in this case is Chromium inside Electron.

    It becomes Chrome with Chromium running in Chromium, which is in Electron.

    So it's not the same thing.

    @filthyranter I'm damn sure you can write a JS runtime in JS, and it's probably been done. It's a Turing-complete language.

    I am pretty sure they were talking about headless Chrome instance. It can be used to render pages with ajax code in it, to make it easier for automated testing.

    I don't think they were talking about Chromeception at all.
    Oh, and electron doesn't run on Chromium, it runs on Node.js runtime which uses Chrome's V8 engine. I can run headless browser inside Node.js, in fact, it's one of the thing Karma.js does for you.

    Yeah, but, make memes on that. I like memes.
