I would really love to see:
A newer webbrowser than Firefox 3. Maybe something webkit-based?
Also a newer office suite than OpenOffice 1 would be great. What about Libreoffice?
Another really great thing to port would be the Telegram messenger (Source Code available here: https://github.com/telegramdesktop/tdesktop
). Especially this one would be really really great to have on my Octane.
Thanks if something of it is possible!
You'd be very lucky if one version of FF with a JIT got ported, yet alone a whole different program.
If JVM works well on IRIX, maybe you'll get a newer OpenOffice, but probably not.
Telegram...well maybe that can be ported, but Pavel Durov would probably remove it due to lack of updates in the future, and it may not work for very long due to maintenance concerns.
Or maybe the guy who resigned from his company and blamed the government when he couldn't get his job back from an angry board would keep it, if you're lucky.
