SSH Shell as a Google Chrome app

Getting Windows to securely log in to a Linux/UNIX/OS X computer is a challenge. Typically, I have installed PuTTY or the CygWin shell for POSIX utilities. Now, with Google building Chrome and extending it with an App Store, there’s a new possibility: ssh as an applet within Chrome. The current version is beta, and it has numerous limitations: many keystrokes are intercepted by the browser or OS, and there’s not yet a facility for public key authentication, but it is a good start.
