I imagine more sophisticated browser based applications.

Security

Installing a desktop app or a browser plugin can present serious security risks. Native Client uses a double sandbox designed to protect resources on the user's system. This framework offers the safety of traditional web apps in addition to native performance benefits.

What I get is that developers get to use C and C++ for making web applications, basically what they provide is a HTLM5 api so it shouldn't bring new features into the table, anyway as any new techonology it's open to be attacked but seem like they keep that it mind when designing it, also I wouldn't expect to see this widely deployed until all major browsers support it.

Also there is some interesting comments, ppl seem to be comparing this to other client-side technologies like Java, flash or even ActiveX.

Perhaps I am slightly confused. When I read this, I thought it was saying the Chrome browser could interpret C code.

I read another article about it and it said Google just released a new API that allows web developers to code the web application in C but then the api converts it to HTML5 for the actual application. This seems like it makes more sense. huh.gif

Thanks that makes more sense now.
