But you said earlier that Chrome helps with native compilation. That is not
true. Chrome creates .NET intermediate code, but it can not be used to
create code that will run natively on Win32. Having Chrome in your copy of
VS.NET does not bring you any closer to Object Pascal on native Win32 than
any of the the built-in languages you get with VS.NET.
