Google "Today, we're happy to make available a developer preview of the Native Client SDK - an important first step in making Native Client more accessible as a tool for developing real web applications. When we released the research version of Native Client a year ago, we offered a snapshot of our source tree that developers could download and tinker with, but the download was big and cumbersome to use. The Native Client SDK preview, in contrast, includes just the basics you need to get started writing an app in minutes."

Welcome to the platform-dependent web !

If this is as open as Android or the Flash spec, Google can get from it the power to decide which platform has the right to access contents on the web and which doesn't.

This reminds of ActiveX. The difference ? They're Google. They're smart enough to do this so that no one understand the threats until it's too late, as an example by avoiding making it a gigantic security flaw.

Goodbye indie OS developers ! We'll miss you...
