So my first thought about this idea would be... why...

 

Okay sure, bringing Android apps to the desktop would be a great idea for those running Chromebooks and such, but why not just bring Dalvik into ChromeOS? It's essentially Gentoo underneath, so why bloat the web browser with such needlessness? :/

 

I'm probably missing some greater picture, but it seems like a hell of a waste of effort to run Android apps in the browser when it'd probably be easier, not to mention more efficient, to simply run Dalvik on the OS itself.
