    I understand that Icenium is targeted toward mobile app development, but wouldn't Icenium attract more customers and expand its market if it adds the ability to generate and package Windows 7/8 and Mac OS X desktop applications based on Google's Chromium Embedded platform/runtime (CEF).

    The mobile development tools arena is already such a crowded marketplace, and I'm sure Icenium will get a bigger slice of the market if it includes --- SOON I HOPE --- an integrated set of tools for packaging CEF-based desktop apps. I believe the first IDE to add this feature will gain a bigger slice of the pie.

    Thanks for replying Stefan - much appreciated.

    I really believe that adding Chromium Embedded-based desktop app packaging to Icenium will DIFFERENTIATE Icenium from the ever-expanding bunch of mobile app development tools, and that THE SOONER TELERIK PUTS THIS FEATURE into Icenium, the better it is for Telerik business-wise and the best that can happen to developers like myself who are currently evaluating Icenium for REAL (i.e., not just mobile) cross-platform development.

    Best,
    Oscar
