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."

Thanks Kroc,

that is what I meant.

NaCl is not different (with minor details) from:

Java
Flash (with or without Alchemy)
.Net
ActiveX

Just because it is being proposed by Google we have to welcome it with open arms?

The Web is to be made of open standards.

As for things like NaCl, there is already a solution. It is called desktop applications.

Maybe I am too old, but I still don't get the browser as an OS.
