So I've been wondering if there will be a version of bitcoin available for Chromium and Google Chrome OS. I've been trying out Chromium and unfortunately java does not work on the newer releases yet (though I've heard it should support it when a final stable release comes later this year). I wonder if the linux version could be made to work for it.

It'd need a fair bit of work on both BitCoin and the network. Chrome[OS] only allows WebSockets, not raw sockets. If port 8333 in the standard software accepted WebSocket connections as well then theoretically you could run a version of the regular software that had been NativeClient-ified.

Alternatively, it's possible that at some point compiling a modified BitCoinJ down to JavaScript could work. It's kind of perverse but could be worth exploring.

Hosting your wallet on some remote server like MyBitcoin or equivalent service is probably the way to go for ChromeOS. It's an OS designed for the cloud so trying to run something very complex and resource intensive on it won't work well, the hardware just isn't high powered enough. Using a cloud wallet is much more in the spirit of the device.

If you can run a 24/7 node with RPC support, there is a chrome plugin that allows you to send money via links in the browser and see your balance.  It is open source if you search on these forums, but also in the chrome webstore.
