Make it possible that fold.it uses more than 2 cores.

There are even Hexacores out there, its a waste of power.

Defintely.
I think this will be a real competition for the developers.
For example, when rebuilding, each core could generate a different result.

One step in this direction would be moving the chat into an extra window/thread.

I think foldit should have the same types of Preferences as Bonic does. Let us control the levers of system resources that foldit uses.
