Will VMware AppBlaster Save Google chrome netbook and the similar?

VMware has announced a new technology called VMware AppBlaster, that will allow to remote applications from any OS to any OS using any HTML 5 web browsers. This means when AppBlaster is released you will be able to run any application under any OS you desire as long you have an HTML 5 web browser (Did some one scream Chrome Browser on Google chrome netbook?). Although when VMware announced the technology in VMworld 2011 did not mention anything about  Google chrome netbook, but guess what browser was used in the demonstration!! You guessed it right Google Chrome Browser, though it was running on Apple MAC in the demo but that does not make a different a Chrome Browser is a Chrome Browser nonetheless the OS it runs on. The funny part the presenter has mentioned Chrome Browser during the demo at least twice!! Don’t get me wrong, I am not implicating that VMware is doing this to help Google Chrome Netbooks to take over the netbook/laptop market, but Google Chrome Netbooks will definitively benefit from that.
