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."

Not sure why anyone would want to run C++ in a web browser.

Either because you have a C++ desktop app or game that you want to turn into a web app without rewriting all the core logic in JavaScript, or because you a have web app that you want to speed up by writing a couple of core bottlenecks in C++.
