Re: Getting rid of Dev mode for future GWT releases

I don't think it's technically impossible to keep DevMode running. I was able to get DevMode to work using JavaFx as the browser instead of Chrome, and it seemed to work ok for basic stuff. It might also be possible to port the GWT UI framework to Elemental, and I've also been able to get Elemental to run in Java on top of JavaFx. I suppose it's even possible to make special versions of Firefox or Chrome that have the features needed to support the DevMode plugin directly.

I doubt that Google sees any value in maintaining DevMode for itself though. But I imagine if you have a support contract with an enterprise software firm selling GWT stuff like Vaadin or RedHat, you could probably bug them to do the necessary work to make it happen.
