Google "Over the last few months we have been hard at work getting Native Client ready to support the new Pepper plug-in interface. Native Client is an open source technology that allows you to build web applications that seamlessly and safely execute native compiled code inside the browser. Today, we've reached an important milestone in our efforts to make Native Client modules as portable and secure as JavaScript, by making available a first release of the revamped Native Client .[...]In the coming months we will be adding APIs for 3D graphics, local file storage, WebSockets, peer-to-peer networking, and more. We'll also be working on Dynamic Shared Objects (DSOs), a feature that will eventually allow us to provide Application Binary Interface (ABI) stability."

Welcome back ActiveX!


Hardly.

NaCl removes the ability for native code to execute outside of the sandbox. It can only interact with the NaCl interfaces provided, and other NaCl libraries/apps that are available to it.

Furthermore, NaCl is cross-platform capable so that it can essentially be ported to any operating system.

Perhaps you should read up on the methods used in NaCl before making such a broad lame statement.
