Xamarin App that runs in the browser

I have a dilemma. I can develop an app in Xamarin that runs on mobile phones, but not on my Chromebook laptop!

Any advise? Why no support for Xamarin.Browser? Target would be server web pages that would display in any browser!

Thanks for your ideas on how to solve my dilemma.

    Why no support for Xamarin.Browser?

    Xamarin.Forms requires .NET or a port thereof such as Monoframework.
    ChromeOS doesn't have that. So the entire infrastructure required for Xamarin.Forms doesn't exist.

    {humorously} Get a grown-up laptop.... Or a tablet of supported OS like an android tablet or iPad
    Sam's Club has 10" tablets for the $150 range. Stick a keyboard on it and you have a Chromebook with workable OS.

    Wasn't there some announcement on the last Google conference that you now can run Android apps on ChromeOS?
