Description

Chrome has experimental TCP socket API - http://code.google.com/chrome/extensions/trunk/experimental.socket.html which is going to be merged soon-ish into stable - http://codereview.chromium.org/10440097/

Do we want to use this?

Here is an IRC client written using this - https://github.com/nornagon/ircv (in case you want an example since there isn't much documentation)

Replying to gsathya:

The above doc link is broken; here are some newer ones:

I get the impression that this API is available only to Chrome "apps," whatever those are. So it likely wouldn't be as easy as running the JavaScript flash proxy.

But if someone is willing to install an "app," then we could connect to any Tor relay without a server transport plugin, and could play NAT piercing games with UDP.
