Adding a completely new way to fold, directly in the browser

Wow, very very interesting! I downloaded it and am giving it a try right now. It seems to run much quicker (UI responsiveness) than the actual software does for me. Overall, we'll see how it goes. But I love that it is incorporated into the browser, especially Chrome, since that's what I usually have open anyhow.

 

Love the simplicity too.

Had that option for a while with version 7.3 unless that is something else.

 

this is a totally new thing, not just a control panel from what I understand. The actual folding occurs in the browser.

So it's running but the WU are very small. My PII940 finished them in ~15min. I also assume there is no GPU folding like this?

Yes, they are quite small. I am finishing them in around 7-20 minutes a piece. Which is great for me since being on the go quite a bit lately provides me the opportunity to fold in certain environments without the WU expiring.

 

I do not believe anything like this is available for GPU folding.

I tried this out on another PC in the house recently, with a 3.2ghz Phenom 2.  Each WU was worth 11 points and took around twenty minutes to complete. This is a good solution for people who want to contribute, without the commitment of installing the full client or waiting hours to large WUs to finish.

Not bad considering the small amount of effort required to set it up.
