Google has introduced the Native Client on the newest version of its Chrome web browser, Chrome 14.
The Native Client, which was first launched in the beta version of Chrome last month, will allow developers to securely run C and C++ code inside the web browser. The latest version of Chrome also comes with Google’s Web Audio API.
According to The Register, the Native Client was introduced as an open source project three years ago.
Native Client is basically a sandboxing technology that lets developers run native code on the browser in a secure manner. The Native Client is available for the web browser via a plug-in called Pepper.
