Run your favourite BIM software in a browser ?

Run your favourite BIM software in a browser ?

Seems to be a new era for CAD and BIM with Frame, it is a service that lets you move any Windows application to the cloud and access it from any device, at any time. All you need is a browser, no plugins or additional hardware are required.
