The problem with node.js, is that you need to run it as a server. Since webbrowsers are considered as client only (for security reasons), you need to find a way to provide an executable version of the nodejs binary to your user.
On FF, you can use something like POW (an extension plugging a webserver inside FF), on Opera, there's Unite, which has his own limitations, but I don't think there are something available natively for the other browsers...

I think that plugging into other frameworks would be great. I was just thinking this morning on how I could start to think about isometric MMO's using Scirra and Isogenic Engine. Looking at the upcoming future of development I am also thinking about LAN play and an article here:

So node.js would be an interesting integration along with some multiplayer features.

From Pode, browser can not be a server without any addition. So we still need do something to create a server.

I had made a Chat plugin by using socket.io client. The server is using tronadio2, a python module, and pack into a stand-alone execution program.rexrainbow2011-12-12 13:32:14

Node.js would be great for an online multiplayer/websockets plugin, since you can write both the server and client side in javascript.

Ah, the original size is 83x80, seems it doesn't look as good upscaled. Doesn't bother me that much.

I try to install Node.js in a stand-alone execution program in window7, but fail.
For now, it does not have an easy way to install node.js in windows.
