Google "Native Client enables Chrome to run high-performance apps compiled from your C and C++ code. One of the main goals of Native Client is to be architecture-independent, so that all machines can run NaCl content. Today we're taking another step toward that goal: our Native Client SDK now supports ARM devices, from version 25 and onwards."

The security behind it was already tested a few times and so far seems to be fairly solid. The native code has to conform to very strict rules, but sure there might be holes(but probably less than Java ;-) )

BUT Chrome X86 ships with it for some time and so far the security nightmare that the "ActiveX!" screeming masses have predicted hasn't happened yet.
