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.


Ugh, ever here of a some computation requiring performance??? Say something like game, imagine if Chrysis were written in some script kiddie language.

Nacl holds huge promise for games,HPC/distributed computing, or any other computationally intensive app.

Here's a thought , writing native C++ for the desktop. I bet it would never catch on though

HPC in a web browser? How, why? Frontend of HPC yes, but for that even HTML4 is enough.

Think of dynamic compute nodes.

Just imagine something like folding @ home, with NaCl, it would not require any install, just run in a browser.
