Google Unleashes Native Client Into Chrome

Filed under: — Aviran Mordo

For well over a year now, Google has been hyping up something called Native Client. It’s an open source technology that allows a web browser to run compiled native code. In other words, it’s a potential missing link between native apps and web apps. And now it’s finally getting baked into Chrome.

As Google notes on their Chrome Blog blog today, the latest beta version of Chrome (version 14) has Native Client built-in. Their implementation allows for C and C code to be executed inside of the browser while maintaining the security that a web technology like JavaScript offers.
